In September 2015, the Government announced a new jobs and investment fund for Tasmanian businesses.
The Fund is a joint initiative with an allocation of up to $24 million (exclusive of GST) from the Commonwealth Government ($8 million) and Tasmanian Government ($16 million).
The fund will be competitive and merit based. It will be open to all industry sectors, including advanced manufacturing, tourism, agriculture and aquaculture.
The Fund will support new projects that create sustainable business investment and job opportunities that will contribute to the strengthening of Tasmania’s economy. The Fund will encourage applications from projects that generate new, sustainable business growth and jobs.
Round 1 is now open for applications and closes on 12 February 2016.
