15 January, 2020
The deadline for application for the job-creating Rural Economic Development Grants program has been extended so bushfire and drought-ravaged applicants don’t miss out. Applications are now open till 24 January 2020.
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.
