Expressions of Interest for Round Three of the Regional Job Creation Fund open
Driving productivity and growth for local businesses, attracting new investment to the regions and boosting job security will be the focus of the next round of the NSW Government’s Regional Job Creation Fund.
The Regional Job Creation Fund (RJCF) Round Three will support existing regional NSW businesses, or those seeking to relocate to regional NSW as they adapt to technological change, meet evolving supply chain distribution demands and leverage their strengths to drive ongoing productivity and regional economic development.
RJCF Round 3 projects will create and/or maintain regional jobs, increase productivity, diversify regional economies, and provide skills, and training opportunities, including for young people, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander individuals and people with disability. This investment will lead to more sustainable employment, and a stronger and more resilient regional economy.
Eligible businesses can apply for grants of between $100,000 and $10 million for projects such as replacing plant equipment, upgrading technology and ensuring businesses that might otherwise have to relocate can remain based in regional areas.
Expressions of Interest for Round Three of the Regional Job Creation Fund open on Friday, 13 January 2023 and close 5pm Monday, 6 March 2023. Successful EOI applicants will be invited to submit detailed applications from May 2023.
