Through the delivery of the $6.5billion Program the State Government is investing for a brighter future for regional Western Australia. Since 2008 the State’s long-term focus on regional development has been supported by state-wide investments using Royalties for Regions funding. With the reinvestment of 25% of mining and onshore petroleum royalties into regional WA each year, we are achieving our goal of building strong and vibrant regional communities that are desirable places to live. This additional investment is channeled into projects that help build regional communities and all decisions are underpinned by six principles:

● Building capacity in regional communities

● Retaining benefits in regional communities

● Improving services to regional communities

● Attaining sustainability

● Expanding opportunity

● Growing prosperity.
