Funding Bolsters Regional Growth & Development

Regional Development Australia Yorke & Mid North (RDAYMN) CEO, Ms Kelly-Anne Saffin is delighted that two significant projects in the Mid North of the State have been formally ‘unveiled’ by Regional Development Minister, Geoff Brock MP.

The two projects officially opened by Minister Brock on April 24 included a new jet re-fuelling facility at the Port Pirie Airport which was enabled with support from the State Government by a grant of $41,960 via the Enterprise Zone Fund for the Upper Spencer Gulf and Outback.

The second project was a re-development at the iconic Golden North Factory in Laura which included new packing equipment and more energy-efficient refrigeration.  This infrastructure improvement was supported by a $200,000 grant from the State Government’s Regional Development Fund.

Ms Saffin’s team of dedicated and skilled staff are based across the region and have offices located in Port Pirie, Clare and Kadina. Their primary focus is to lead and facilitate regional development through partnerships with local communities, business and government. Further they serve as an effective conduit between governments and regional communities.

“When the ground work we put into assisting individuals and businesses in their efforts to secure grants funding pays off with the realisation to funding approval, we have a keen sense of satisfaction.

Knowing that our role in facilitating, driving and enabling economic growth in the regions is keenly valued is hugely rewarding” Ms Saffin said.

Ms Saffin would encourage anyone wanting to learn more about the suite of services RDAYMN can deliver to call toll free on 1300 742 414.

Regional Development Australia is an Australian Government initiative that brings together all levels of government to enhance the development of Australia's regions. RDAYMN is an integral part of this national network.
