APPLY NOW FOR THE BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY GROWTH PROGRAM
The Business and Community Growth Program (BCGP) is an exciting new program designed to help grow businesses and industries in northern Australia, complementing the existing Northern Australia Development Program.
The BCGP is open to a broad range of applicants, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, community organisations, sole-traders, and partnerships.
Grants of between $50,000 and $2 million will be available to support activities such as capital investment in infrastructure, assets, and feasibility studies, with grants available to fund up to 50 per cent of the total cost of individual projects.
The BCGP aims to create jobs that provide ongoing employment and training opportunities, which are essential to growing Northern Australia, as well as improve community amenity and liveability.
Applications are open from 6 December 2021 until 13 January 2022 and grants will be awarded from March 2022. Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications early. BCGP Fact Sheet
