Application guidelines released for Made in Queensland round five

Manufacturing News

Guidelines have been released ahead of applications opening for round five of the Made In Queensland program, which offers grants of up to $2.5 million to help manufacturers “purchase big-ticket items that will help them modernise their business”.

In a statement on Tuesday, manufacturing minister Glenn Butcher said: “We know from talking to manufacturers that they wanted more time to go through the guidelines before applications open, so we have responded to that and published the guidelines two weeks before we begin accepting submissions.”

(Guidelines are available here. The round opens on October 31.)    

The program provides matched funding to successful applicants – which must be SMEs (defined as between five and 200 employees) – to assist projects including process improvement, robotics, new technologies, and advanced systems.

The MiQ program was recently extended by $40 million in the state’s budget, accommodating rounds five and six. 

According to the Queensland government, the first four rounds supported 104 manufacturing projects in the state – 39 of them in regions – and created over 1,700, as well as stimulating over $140 million in private investment.
