The opening of the Regional Growth Fund has been brought forward in an effort to help provide economic stimulus to SA regions in the wake of devastating bushfires, drought and ongoing impacts of coronavirus.
Applications are open now for the $5 million dollar competitive round for projects that strengthen regional economies.
Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone said the $150 million Regional Growth Fund provides an economic boost to our regional communities.
Applicants in the third round can seek grants from $50,000 up to $2 million, with projects to be located within South Australia that offer outcomes and benefits for regional South Australia.
Projects should foster collaboration and demonstrate a commitment to local employment, and purchase local supplies wherever possible. Applications to the Regional Growth Fund will be accepted from local government bodies, incorporated associations and business clusters.
Applications for Round Three of the Regional Growth Fund close at 12pm on Monday 11 May 2020.
