Overview


The $90 million Next Generation Manufacturing Investment Programme helps businesses investing in capital projects, to establish or expand high value manufacturing operations in South Australia and Victoria.

It is part of the Australian Government’s $155 million Growth Fund. The fund was established in 2014 to support employees, businesses and regions affected by the closure of Australia’s car manufacturing industry.

The Victorian and South Australian state governments each contributed $12 million to grants under the programme.

Projects can take up to three years to complete. The project must be undertaken in South Australia or Victoria.

The programme operates over 5 years from 2015-16 to 2019-20. Successful applicants have until the 30 June 2020 to complete their projects. 

If you received this funding, you can’t receive any other Australian Government funding for the same project.
