22nd November, 2019

Are you a premium small-scale producer, craft brewer or distiller looking to scale-up your operations, diversify your product lines and expand your outreach?

The state government’s small-scale and craft grants program provides funding for small-scale Victorian agribusinesses to grow – boosting jobs, attracting visitors and making sure regional communities are vibrant places to live and visit.

Two streams of funding are available under the $10 million program:

  • Small-scale and craft business development grants of up to $25,000 for projects that support eligible small-scale and craft producers to scale up, expand their operations and diversify their products – open until 6 December.
  • Job creation and economic development grants of between $25,000 to $200,000 for eligible small-scale and craft agribusinesses to deliver significant projects that deliver benefits to the community and generate jobs – open until 31 December. Projects involving multiple businesses are encouraged to apply.

Victoria is renowned for its premium produce. The small-scale and crafts grants program supports agricultural businesses to scale up, increase their unique food and drink offerings, and take the state’s produce to the world.
