The Regional Strategic Partnership Fund (RSPF) is a $200 million fund to support regions to make steps towards achieving their economic potential.
New Zealand’s economy is built on its regions.
Each region faces different economic challenges and opportunities depending on the businesses and industries based there, the resources they need to thrive, the infrastructure they rely on, and the skills of the people who call these places home.
The Government wants to make regions’ economies stronger and more resilient to improve the economic prospects, wellbeing and living standards of all New Zealanders.
The Regional Strategic Partnership Fund is part of this strategy.
It provides $200 million to help grow regional economies by recognising each ones’ individual strengths and working with them in partnership to develop regionally-specific projects.
When completed, these projects will improve the regions’ economic outcomes and the wellbeing of their communities.
