The Victorian government announced on Monday that it is accepting applications from SMEs for the Made in Victoria – Manufacturing Growth Program, offering grants of up to $250,000.
According to the statement, the program – which awarded more than $10 million to 29 projects last year – would support manufacturers “introduce new technologies, expand operations and improve productivity”.
Grants valued between $50,000 and $250,000 are available, with companies needing to match them by a minimum investment of $2 per every $1 in grant money.
Ben Carroll, the state’s minister for manufacturing sovereignty, said, “Victoria is the home of advanced manufacturing in Australia and we’re continuing to invest in this sector because we know how critical it is to growing our economy and creating jobs.”
Applications close at 5pm on Thursday, April 6.
