Manufacturing Modernisation Fund
The $50 million Manufacturing Modernisation Fund supports manufacturers to modernise, adopt new technologies, become more productive and create more jobs by co-funding capital investments and associated reskilling.
Modernisation can include technology upgrades, efficiency upgrades, such as energy or process optimisation, or more transformative changes to your business, which will allow you to produce new products or diversify into new markets.
The program aims to:
- support investment in efficient and transformative manufacturing processes by small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)
- support jobs growth and a more highly skilled workforce in the manufacturing sector
The program will run over 3 years and will be delivered through two streams of funding:
- an estimated $20 million for matched grants of between $50,000 to $100,000 for small scale technology and efficiency investments
- an estimated $30 million for larger grants between $100,000 to $1 million, on a three to one funding basis, to support transformative investments in technologies and processes
The maximum grant period is 2 years.
Closing Date 31 October 2019
