How We Help
RDA Kimberley plays an active role in growing a strong and confident regional economy that seizes on economic opportunity and attracts investment. A major part of the assistance we deliver is in providing information and assistance around a range of grant and funding opportunities that may be available to Kimberley organisations and businesses.
We match organisations with funding opportunities.
Our staff and committee work to:
- Collaborate with relevant stakeholders to identify economic opportunities and leverage private and public sector investment to the Kimberley
- Connect regional businesses, councils and industry sectors with international trade partners, financial markets and potential investors.
- Promote and disseminate information on Australian Government policies and grant programs to state and local governments and industry, business and community sectors.
- Support community stakeholders to develop project proposals to access funding opportunities.
How we help
Tens of billions of dollars in government, corporate and philanthropic grants funding is provided each year. The trick is to make sure your organisation gets its share.
The first and most important thing to know about grants is that they are generally given for projects or programs, not for your core funding – wages, administration costs, etc. are almost always excluded unless these are part of the project or program.
Grants are generally tied funds, while money you draw in from membership fees, fundraising events or sale of products can be used any way your organisation wishes.
A range of local, state and national funding opportunities that your organisation may be eligible for is available. Use our Find a Grant resources and Government Funding information or contact us to see what your organisation is eligible for and discuss your project and grant requirements before you apply so that we can offer free advice on grant suitability and project planning.
