Grants in Manufacturing

WA METS Innovation Program

Up to $250,000

The METS Innovation Program aims to support research initiatives spearheaded by Mining, Equipment, Technology, and Services (METS) companies servicing to WA’s mining sector. With a $3 million funding allocation, the program offers a targeted grant scheme providing matched funding of up to $250,000 for qualifying grant recipients, along with project facilitation support for collaborative ventures. It focuses on advancing technologies in MRIWA’s strategic areas, including low-emissions technologies, precision and low-impact mining, critical minerals, and innovative uses of tailings and waste.

Industry Growth Program: Commercialisation and Growth

$100,000 - $5million

Commercialisation and Growth grants target innovative projects in the prototyping to market-readiness stages. Activities involve devising market entry strategies, speeding up growth, and expanding into national and international markets.

Industry Growth Program: Early-Stage Commercialisation

$50,000 - $250,000

Early-stage commercialisation projects encompass the entire process, starting from feasibility studies and proof-of-concept development, all the way to producing and testing early prototypes in simulated or theoretical settings. The grants support projects and business activities aimed at validating the commercial potential of your innovative products, processes, or services.

Solar Sunshot

TBC

The Solar Sunshot program aims to assist innovative manufacturing facilities in Australia operating within the solar PV supply chain. This includes polysilicon, ingot, wafer, solar PV cell, and solar module assembly production.

Advance Queensland Ignite Ideas Fund

Tier 1 up to $100,000; Tier 2 up to $200,000

The Ignite Ideas Fund offers funding for commercialising highly innovative products or services, at or beyond the minimum viable product stage. This fund serves as a companion program to the Advance Queensland Ignite Spark Program, which supports projects in advancing highly innovative products or services from prototype development through testing and validation to market readiness.

NSW Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative – Low Carbon Product Manufacturing

The construction ready stream: $2M-$20M; the project development stream: $50K-$900K.

The Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative, integral to the NSW Government's aim for net zero emissions by 2050, combines three programs: - Clean Technology Innovation (CTI) for developing low-emission technologies - Low Carbon Product Manufacturing (LCPM) to support local production of essential low-carbon goods - Renewable Manufacturing (RM) to boost local production of renewable energy components. The LCPM aims to invest in new industrial facilities and advanced manufacturing capabilities, facilitating the decarbonisation of the NSW economy toward achieving net zero emissions by 2050. It has four key objectives: - stimulating economic growth throughout NSW - encouraging investment and employment in emerging low carbon industries - developing a diverse, self-sufficient, resilient, and competitive low carbon manufacturing sector - establishing new industrial facilities and advanced manufacturing capabilities to drive decarbonisation efforts in NSW.

NSW Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative – Clean Technology Innovation

$250,000 - $5 million

The Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative, integral to the NSW Government's aim for net zero emissions by 2050, combines three programs: - Clean Technology Innovation (CTI) for developing low-emission technologies - Low Carbon Product Manufacturing (LCPM) to support local production of essential low-carbon goods - Renewable Manufacturing (RM) to boost local production of renewable energy components. The CTI grants aim to promote innovation across the entire spectrum of product development – from initial research and testing to infrastructure enhancement, commercialisation, and implementation. The goals of the CTI grants include: - assessing the technical and commercial feasibility, viability, and compliance of a product or project - speeding up and broadening the research, development, and commercialisation of low emissions technologies with the potential to scale, replicate, and become cost-effective - cultivating an ecosystem capable of nurturing clean technology innovation - attracting leading clean technology companies and innovations to NSW, thereby positioning NSW as a hub for clean technology excellence.

NSW Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative – Renewable Manufacturing

$5 million - $50 million

The Net Zero Manufacturing Initiative, integral to the NSW Government's aim for net zero emissions by 2050, combines three programs: - Clean Technology Innovation (CTI) for developing low-emission technologies - Low Carbon Product Manufacturing (LCPM) to support local production of essential low-carbon goods - Renewable Manufacturing (RM) to boost local production of renewable energy components. The objectives of the RM fund aim to: - stimulate economic growth throughout NSW - enhance the capacity and expertise of the state's renewable energy supply chain - mitigate supply chain risks while ensuring stability for the NSW renewable energy sector.

Tasmanian Freight Equalisation Scheme

The assistance provided is determined by calculating the variance between the freight expenses incurred for sea transportation and the hypothetical costs for moving the goods by road over an equivalent distance.

The Tasmanian Freight Equalisation Scheme offers financial aid to both businesses and individuals, helping offset the expenses associated with transporting goods via sea routes. It specifically targets eligible non-bulk goods, aiming to level the playing field for Tasmanian industries. Given the geographical constraints that limit interstate transportation options to road or rail, this scheme ensures Tasmanian shippers can compete on par with counterparts in other markets.
