Discover more about the Kimberley Development Commission.

KDC sponsorship and financial assitance.

Every year, the Kimberley Development sponsors a small number of events or activities of regional significance. These may include, for example, major Kimberley events or forums, business planning or development work on strategic projects, or representation of the Kimberley at key events and forms outside the region. 

Funding of this kind is generally limited to one-off costs of participation or other targeted uses, and is not available to meet capital expenses or normal operating costs. Sponsorship is generally limited to a maximum of $5,000 or up to $10,000 for recognised events of central importance for development of our region.
