You’re eligible again.
Changes to the 2021 program mean previous EMDG applicants can now reapply (conditions apply). Applications Close 30th November 2021.
Reforms to the Export Market Development Grant came into effect on 1 July 2021, reorienting EMDG from an old reimbursement scheme (you spend it, we assess it, then reimburse it) to a new grant program model. Under this new model you will need to submit a grant application. It will then be assessed and pre-approved, after which you will spend it and submit milestone reports so milestone payments can be made.
What does this mean?
This means you now submit a 2 or 3 year export development proposal along with budgets, project deliverables and milestones to receive a preapproved grant.
How much can I get?
There’s always a lot of detail so we encourage you to visit the grant website, but here are a few of the highlights:
New to Export (Tier 1) – grants up to $80,000 over 2 years
Existing Exporters (Tier 2) – grants up to $240,000 over 3 years
Strategic Migrations (Tier 3) – grants up to $450,000 over 3 years
What projects can I engage CVEN for under the grants?
– Research and identify new export markets
– Assess the competition & identify the buyers
– Research the entry pathways
– Export planning and pricing strategies
– Upgrade your promotional decks, websites and social media
It can be, but in fact this new structure is very much aligned to how CVEN’s export development projects work. Not only do we plan your roadmap, we also partner you with an EMDG specialist to put it all in place.
Get yourself an export team
This new structure will equip your business with a highly experienced international trade team that can undertake all the export business development activities you’ve been wanting to tackle. And the best news, the proposal spans 2 or 3 years of funding per application, so there’s plenty of time to really get your exports moving.
Sounds great, How do I get started?
