Grant opportunities for growers

General Jan. 30, 2020

Applications are open until February 28 for the Federal Government's Package Assisting Small Exporters program.

The program was established to fund projects that directly benefit small exporters, particularly those that overcome barriers to market access.

A total of $5 million is available for distribution over the period 2019-20 to 2022-23.

In 2013, the government set up the scheme to improve market access for small exporters in the dairy, fish, eggs, grain, plant, horticulture, meat and animal product industries. The program commenced with approximately $10 million available for funding projects that directly benefitted small exporters, particularly those that would improve market access for small exporters. A further $0.45 million was made available from 2017–18 for distribution over the period 2017-18 to 2021-22.

In 2019, the government announced $6.1 million over four years to extend the program to continue to support small exporters to overcome barriers to market access. $5 million is available for distribution over the period 2019-20 to 2022-23.

Under the program, grants are available to organisations and individuals for projects that support small exporters in the dairy, fish, eggs, grain, plant, horticulture, meat and animal products industries to overcome barriers to market access.
