Future Drought Fund – Drought Resilience Innovation Grants are now open.
Minister Littleproud has announced the Future Drought Fund – Drought Resilience Innovation Grants are now open.
The Australian Government is inviting Expression of Interest applications via an open competitive process for grants under the Future Drought Fund – Drought Resilience Innovation Expression of Interest (EOI) and Grants Program from 29 July 2021 to 8 September 2021.
3 grant types are available in this EOI and grant opportunity.
- Ideas Grants will provide $50,000 (GST inclusive) for one year.
- Proof-of-Concept Grants will provide funding of up to $120,000 (GST inclusive) for one year.
- Innovation Grants will provide funding of between $300,000 to $1.1 million (GST inclusive) per year for a maximum of 3 years.
This grant opportunity will run through a 2-part process.
You can express interest in an Innovation Grant, Proof-of-Concept Grant, or an Ideas Grant. You may submit more than one application. Separate projects need a separate application form.
The EOI process will be used to move applications into the most appropriate funding stream to support merit worthy proposals of varying scale and development, and to manage risks.
If your proposal is assessed as suitable in the EOI process for an Innovation Grant or a Proof-of-Concept Grant, you will be invited to apply for these through a targeted competitive grant round.
If your proposal is assessed as suitable in the EOI process for an Ideas Grant, you will be offered this grant based on your EOI.
