Options for grants

GSDC Bulletin 50

GSDC officers can provide information on grants available for organisations seeking funding for worthwhile projects in the Great Southern.

Commonwealth grants can help in areas of business development, wine export, renewable energy and innovation. State Government grants may help with community events, heritage and conservation, trails, research and organisational development.

Organisations with potential projects that could benefit the region can contact the GSDC for confidential discussions about the range of grants available through other agencies.

Two potential sources of grants through the GSDC were flagged in May’s State Budget, the Regional Economic Development Scheme and the Regional New Industries Fund, although neither is yet open for applications.

Watch the GSDC website and Facebook page for further information as it becomes available.

In the past financial year, the GSDC administered funding for more than 100 projects in the region.
