Regional Growth Fund

Introducing the Regional Growth Fund

On 2 March 2018 the Hon Dr John McVeigh MP, Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, announced the opening for Initial Applications to the $272.2 million Regional Growth Fund.

The Regional Growth Fund will provide grants of $10 million or more for major transformational projects which support long-term economic growth and create jobs in regions undergoing structural adjustment.

Selection of projects will be undertaken in two stages. Stage One requires submission of an Initial Application for competitive assessment. Stage Two is for the submission of a Full Business Case. Only successful applications to the Initial Application will be invited to submit a Full Business Case.

Initial Applications are now open.

Initial Applications will close at 5pm AEST on 27 April 2018.

Thinking of applying?

To be competitive you must score highly against all three criteria:

  • Create Jobs
  • Drive Economic Growth
  • Build Stronger Regional Communities

If you need support, RDA Tasmania can:

  • assist you to identify and develop a strong project proposal that will contribute to long term economic growth and is a priority within your region, and
  • work with you to prepare a competitive Initial Application, supporting documents and evidence.
