Under the current round, $2.184 million of Royalties for Regions funding for the Peel region was received via the Regional Grants Scheme (RGS) and Community Chest Fund (CCF) grants. In total, 20 locally driven projects have been funded through the Peel CCF and 12 projects through the RGS.

RGS is aimed at projects to help attract investment, increase job opportunities and improve the quality of life in the regions, with grants from $50,001 to $300,000, with CCF supporting smaller local projects with grants of up to $50,000.

These schemes directly help a wide range of community and interest groups, local governments and not-for-profits seeking support to create strong and vibrant communities who are eligible to apply for funding.
