OPEN NOW – Regional New Industries Fund

Regional New Industries Fund

The State Government is committed to building regional economies that are entrepreneurial, creative and technology-driven to create sustainable job opportunities for regional people.

The State Government’s Regional New Industries Fund will allocate $4.5 million across the nine regions of Western Australia to support venture creation, accelerate small-medium enterprise growth and seed innovation initiatives. The program comprises two allocations: a Regional Stream and a State Network Stream. Funding totals $4.5 million over four years.

Regional Stream

The Regional Stream will seed local initiatives that build a communities innovation pipeline and drive long-term impact.  Up to $300,000 is available to the Gascoyne region.

State Network Stream

The State Network Stream will fund projects that increase connectivity and build capability across regions, the state and international markets. In particular, the stream priorities initiatives that enable technology development, service innovation and market access.

The Gascoyne Development Commission is developing Regional Innovation Partnerships (Partnerships) to support projects through idea sharing, collaborating and network building.

Applications may be made at any time, there is currently no set closing date.

From October 2018, Regional New Industries Fund applications will be processed via SmartyGrants, an independent, online grant processing portal.
