Welcome to Food South Australia’s grants guide. Here you will find out about current relevant grant programs for the food and beverage industry, where to get advice and how to get yourself ‘grant ready’.
How to find out about current grant programs
There are a number of services and websites run by state and federal government agencies that are designed to provide comprehensive lists of currently active grant programs. These are accessible free of charge, and some also allow you to register to be alerted when new grant programs relevant to your industry, or new rounds of current programs become available. We recommend you visit:
The Government of South Australia has developed GRANTassist to provide businesses with access to up to date information on State and Federal Government assistance and programs relevant to your business. GRANTassist can help you locate the assistance and program initiatives most relevant to your business needs. The GRANTassist tool allows you to search for programs in the Food, Beverages and Wine sectors, and can provide advice, business development assistance or financial support to help you improve your business.
The Federal Government’s AusIndustry website also provides a search function to find current grant program information here. https://www.business.gov.au/assistance. (This site also includes other useful business resources and templates.)
Who can help?
State and federal grant programs usually have a nominated advisor or coordinator. These people are the experts, and can help you understand the objectives of the grant program you are considering, and whether your proposed project or activity is eligible under that program. Make them your first point of contact for in-depth free advice before you start preparing your grant application.
