Sustainability and innovation grant

Wine producers may be eligible to receive grants to develop, trial and implement new and innovative tools to support sustainable practices

The Federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is currently offering grants to primary producers to develop, trial and implement new and innovative tools that support the uptake of sustainable practices.

This initiative is from the Smart Farming Partnerships grant program and provides grants from $250 000 to $4 million.

This is especially a great opportunity for wine producers to receive funding to allow the development of sustainable practices that protect and improve our resources of soil, water, plants and animals which underpin productive and profitable primary industries.

Grants are available to experienced and skilled organisations willing to work in partnership. Those eligible include public and private companies, incorporated associations, individual/sole trader and Local/State Government agencies.

Applications close 21 December 2017.
