State Government of Victoria


Regional Development Victoria (RDV) is the lead agency in developing rural and regional Victoria.
RDV delivers the Victorian Government’s agenda to drive jobs and more prosperous communities in regional Victoria.

Our focus is on supporting the Government’s vision of creating a stronger regional Victoria through job creation, better infrastructure and new investment. RDV currently administers a number of programs designed to:

  • support business and industry development
  • help new businesses to establish themselves
  • assist existing industries to grow and diversify
  • build prosperous, stronger regional communities

Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund

Over the next four years RDV will implement the Victorian Government’s new $500 million Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund, supporting major projects, creating jobs and building stronger regional communities.

The fund will have three parts, focussing on major projects, employment and communities.

The $250 million Regional Infrastructure Development Fund will invest in projects that create jobs, support population growth, grow our economy and meet the needs of both our regional cities and rural communities. The fund will include dedicated streams to support the 10 regional cities and 38 rural council areas.

The $200 million Regional Jobs Fund will help our regional industries and businesses to grow their workforces, expand their markets and create the jobs of the future. The fund will be complimented by the establishment of eight business centres across regional Victoria, providing expert advice and assistance to companies looking to expand or relocate.

The $50 million Stronger Regional Communities plan will help our regional towns attract families and young people to live and work. As part of the plan, $25 million will be allocated to A New Future in Regional Victoria fund, focused on creating more training opportunities closer to home.

The Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund will be officially launched in 2015. Commitments to more than 30 projects have already been made, with planning for a number of key initiatives already underway. Further information on the fund will be made available shortly.
