Our Economic Development Fund is NOW OPEN.
The Fund supports business organisations that are looking to deliver sustainable economic development initiatives that will drive business and jobs growth in the East Arnhem Region. The Fund is an exciting element in the program of economic development support being delivered by Developing East Arnhem Limited, and a great opportunity to support ideas that can really help East Arnhem to grow.
