Manufacturing Hubs Grant Program NOW OPEN
31 January, 2020
Grants between $5000 and $1 million are available, with the funds administered through the Rockhampton Manufacturing Hub, a state industry initiative to create jobs and maximise local manufacturing strengths like rail and metal production.
The grants can be used to purchase cutting-edge equipment, implement more efficient processes, and train staff. There are a wide range of grants available meaning the program can benefit any manufacturing business, whether they’re big or small.
Manufacturing Hub Grants are aimed to help build advanced manufacturing capability in Queensland through technology adoption, skills and training and business development.
Successful applicants can also use grant funding to access services offered through Australia’s first advanced robotics hub for manufacturing, which is on track to open in the first half of 2020.
Funding is provided on a co-contribution basis, with the state covering 75 per cent of capital expenditure for grants between $5000 and $500,0000, and a further 50 per cent for grants up to $1 million.
To apply for the Manufacturing Hubs Grant Program head to qld.gov.au/manufacturinghubsgrants, or phone the Rockhampton Manufacturing Hub on 4924 2914 for more information.
The Manufacturing Hubs Grant Program is an initiative through the Queensland Advanced Manufacturing 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan.
