The GSDC undertakes a range of projects across the region, often in partnership with industry, community groups and government departments. The GSDC also supports many projects through the Royalties for Regions-funded Great Southern Regional Grants Scheme (RGS) and the Community Chest Fund (CCF). See the Regional Grants Scheme page and the Community Chest Fund page for listings of funded projects.
Our projects align with the GSDC Strategic Directions 2014-2020 and the Great Southern Regional Investment Blueprint, both of which acknowledge four goals as drivers for the region’s economic and social development, growth and prosperity to 2040: Economic growth and diversification; essential infrastructure and services; community and environment; knowledge and innovation.
