The industry assistance framework will place a strong emphasis on supporting proposals that have broad benefits for an industry sector or a number of businesses, so as to maximise economic development benefits resulting from public investment.
Three main funds will provide the basis for more rigorous economic development.
Regional Growth Fund
The Regional Growth Fund is designed to unlock new economic activity in South Australia’s regions, to deliver critical economic infrastructure to create direct benefit across regional industries, and to strengthen regional communities.

Research, Commercialisation and Startup Fund
The Research, Commercialisation and Startup Fund (RCSF) supports researchers, entrepreneurs and businesses to accelerate their progress with funding from the South Australian Government.

Economic and Business Growth Fund
The Economic and Business Growth Fund will promote economic growth by encouraging growth of existing businesses, developing new industries, building international connections, and attracting foreign and national direct investment.
This fund aims for industry-wide, sector-wide or economy-wide outcomes, rather than benefits to just one company or small supply chain.
