South West businesses are being asked to consider applying for State Government funding for innovate proposals.

Round six of the Regional Economic Development Grants program has now opened, providing up to $250,000 for projects which help support jobs, expand industry, increase skills or productivity and attract new regional investment.

In all, 317 projects have been supported in previous funding rounds across the State including a $50,000 regional scalability and expansion program for Harvey Hemp and $100,000 towards Samson’s Paddock’s plans for premier hotel accommodation in Donnybrook.

Member for Bunbury Don Punch said the grants were a opportunity for enterprises to pursue growth.
