The Regional Economic Development Grants (RED Grants) program is a $28.8 million (over five years) State Government initiative that invests in community driven projects to stimulate economic growth and development in regional Western Australia.
It is part of the State Government’s $4 billion job-creating Royalties for Regions investment across regional WA.
Delivered locally by the State’s nine Regional Development Commissions, up to $250,000 over two financial years is available for individual projects that contribute to sustainable jobs, expand or diversify industry, develop skills and capability, attract new investment or maximise recovery from COVID-19 impacts to the region.
The grants will boost investment in local regional projects that contribute to population and economic growth initiatives, local marketing and innovation pilots, and importantly, are driven by the community.
The objectives of the RED Grants Program include:
- Sustainable jobs
- Expanding or diversifying industry;
- Developing skills or capabilities;
- Attracting new investment in the region;
- Maximising recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic impacts.

The RED Grants for the Peel region are delivered by the Peel Development Commission with support from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD).
