2023 Hills & Coast Business Grant Released!

Regional Development Australia Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island (RDA AHFKI), is pleased to announce the release of their Hills & Coast Business Grant 2023.

Following on from the success of this grant in 2021 and 2022, the 2023 round of funding aligns with the RDA AHFKI Strategy to “Strengthen Our Most Competitive Sectors”, with a focus on manufacturing.

“We see the manufacturing sector as a key driver of our regional economy. This round of our Hills and Coast Business Grant is aimed at emerging and established manufacturing businesses who are seeking to build efficiency within their processes to ensure their competitiveness in the future.”

Damien Cooke, CEO, RDA AHFKI

The Hills & Coast Business Grant provides $1,000-$10,000 in matched funding (1:1) for eligible applicants. The 2023 round aims to support the productivity and growth of manufacturing businesses across the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island LGAs by helping them:

  • procure new equipment to improve productivity
  • address challenges and/or barriers to growth

This is not a “business-as-usual” funding opportunity, but one that will provide assistance where limited funds are actively restricting capacity for growth and productivity.
