One of our key roles is advocating for and supporting important regional projects, including through grants and funding programs. We aim to connect you to support and opportunities available within the Great Southern.
If our grant programs are closed or your proposal falls outside our guidelines, you could try accessing grants through other agencies and organisations.
Search the GSDC Grants Hub to find available grants and funding opportunities.
The Regional Economic Development Grants (RED Grants) program is a $50.85 million over nine years State Government initiative investing in locally-driven projects to stimulate economic growth and development in regional Western Australia.
The Great Southern Development Commission has a strong commitment to diversifying the region's economic base, growth of business and entrepreneurship, retaining, attracting, and developing skilled people, and maximising local jobs.
We work with stakeholders to develop the Great Southern, and may be able to provide assistance if your project aligns with this.
Do you have a regional project, event or activity in the Great Southern? We would love to hear about it, and see how we can help.
The Great Southern is one of nine regions in Western Australia, taking in several hundred kilometres of the State’s pristine southern coastline. Our region’s geography includes ancient mountain ranges, deep forests, productive farmland, and breathtaking coastal scenery.
