The International Competitiveness Co-investment Fund (ICCF or the Program) is a major grant program of the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD).  

To date, $3.85 million has been committed by the State Government over four rounds of grants through the ICCF Round One and what was formerly known as the Grants for Asian Market Exports (GAME).  

Funding for ICCF Round Two is available for projects to be run over two years from 2021-22 to 2022-23.  The total amount of funds available for ICCF Round Two during this period is $2.7 million.   

The Program aims to: 

  • Provide WA agrifood businesses with the capability to access and develop international export markets;  
  • Support WA agrifood businesses to achieve consistent business growth through enhanced international competitiveness and strategic customer relationships in high value, premium international export markets; and 
  • Support WA exporters in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to maintain and further develop their relationships with existing and new international customers. 

ICCF Round Two also seeks to support WA agrifood businesses to develop and implement strategies to capture export market opportunities including those with discerning consumers looking for agrifood products with sustainability-related attributes that will lead to direct benefits for regional Western Australia.   

Grants of between $20,000 and $100,000 are available to aspiring, emerging and established exporters with a cash co-contribution requirement of $1 for every $1 of grant funding received. 

Applications open on Monday 13 December 2021 and close at 9:00pm on Friday 4 February 2022. Applications are now closed
