RDA Adelaide Metro (RDAAM) as a capital city RDA is tasked with assisting its regional RDA SA counterparts to increase economic development activity to positively impact the regions, assisting with job growth, investment and the support of local procurement. The delivery of infrastructure projects within regions is an identified way of enabling this growth.
The single greatest hurdle in securing funding for such projects is the development of a comprehensive project business case. There are very few funding programs that will assist with this first critical
stage of project planning and proof.
The Board of RDAAM have agreed to offer the Strategic Investment Projects Accelerator Fund as a once off fund. The aim is to help accelerate regional South Australian projects from concept to completion by supporting through matched funding the initial project planning stage in the development of a comprehensive feasibility study or business case.
Funding of up to $50,000 (to be matched dollar for dollar by the applicant) may be awarded to those submitting an application who present the most strategic projects with the best outcomes for regional South Australia
Successful projects will create or drive increased economic, community or strategic outcomes for the region/s of South Australia, ideally enabling investment and jobs, and the building of regional capability. The link between the project and regional benefit will need to be established by you in the Application.
Applications close 5pm Friday 30th April, 2021
