Regional Development Infrastructure Fund
The Regional Development Infrastructure Fund (RDIF) provides financial support to projects that are a priority for economic development, with broad benefits for an industry or region. The fund aims to encourage a strategic approach to infrastructure development.
Grants or loans are available for up to 50% of eligible infrastructure costs.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate that a project is consistent with the government's objectives for State and regional development. To determine this, applicants should review South Australia’s Strategic Plan and Strategic Infrastructure Plan for SA, and contact Regional Development Australia Barossa for relevant plans and strategies.
For the purpose of this fund, ‘eligible infrastructure’ relates to infrastructure that enables economic activity and delivers economic outcomes. This includes:
• Energy assets (electricity, gas and other power sources)
• Transport (excluding roads owned by Local, State or Commonwealth governments)
• Waste water
