Royalties for Regions projects have created new jobs; built new and better infrastructure and facilities; and strengthened the areas of health services, education, aged persons care, and tourism.

Just as importantly, many of the projects mean that regional communities are now better connected and families are more likely to stay in regional WA rather than shift elsewhere to pursue other employment, education, health or retirement options.

Evaluations and case studies indicate that Royalties for Regions funding has contributed to the wellbeing of remote Aboriginal communities, improved employment opportunities and provided opportunities to improve children's literacy. In addition, funding for housing for non-government organisation staff has been instrumental in ensuring the continuation of important services to the Kimberley region. Health services in the Kimberley have also been improved through Royalties for Regions investment with some areas such as drug and alcohol support, mental health, indigenous health and ambulance services benefiting.

The case studies below illustrate the effect of Royalties for Regions funding within the Kimberley.
