  • an estimated $20 million for matched grants of between $50,000 to $100,000 for small scale technology and efficiency investments
  • an estimated $30 million for larger grants between $100,000 to $1 million, on a three to one funding basis, to support transformative investments in technologies and processes
  • The maximum grant period is 2 years

The fund closes on Thursday 31st October at 5pm.
