Help to access funding

The Dairy Australia Grant Access Support (GAS) Scheme supports Australian dairy processors to hire grant writers and technical consultants to develop funding applications for high-value grant programs.

By supporting Australian dairy manufacturers to access the many relevant funding opportunities available to them, the GAS Scheme is designed to encourage implementation of profitable infrastructure projects which sit outside the manufacturer’s normal capital hurdles as well as facilitate increased adoption of innovative, best-practice technologies. 

Funding support of up to $10,000 is available with no additional cash contribution required.

Priority will be given to projects which seek to implement projects with the capacity to improve the sector’s performance with respect to the manufacturing-based targets under the Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Framework, namely:

  • Reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity.
  • Reduction of consumptive water intensity.
  • Reduction of waste to landfill.

Does your business have a great capital project which is sitting just out reach? 

Are there government funding programs available that, if accessed, could get your project over the line?

Dairy Australia can assist.
