EOI for Round 2 of Rural Economic Development Grants now open
25 July, 2019
The Rural Economic Development Grants Scheme has been funded to an amount of $10m over three funding rounds. These grants will fund projects which provide unique opportunities to generate economic and employment opportunities related to primary production across rural and remote Queensland.
Grants are available up to a maximum of $250,000 with a 50 per cent cash contribution requirement from applicants.
Example projects eligible under the scheme could include the development of new products or markets, or improved business processes where such investment creates employment – for further detail on eligible applicants and eligible projects under the scheme view the guideline and frequently asked questions below.
Round 2 expressions of interest will close to submissions on 6 September 2019.
It is anticipated that a third round for the scheme will commence in mid 2020.
