Emerging Aviation Technology Partnerships Program - Round One Grant Closes: 31st of March 2022 Value: Unspecified Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=8b0b34ef-bbb3-46b3-937b-f39da31d68bf

The EATP program will encourage adoption of emerging aviation technologies (such as drones, electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and new aviation propulsion systems) to address community needs, particularly in regional Australia.

The Australian Government is seeking to partner with industry on the development and deployment of emerging aviation technology. These partnerships may also bring together other parties as required to deliver projects, such as state or territory government agencies, local councils and communities.

The Round One grant opportunity has five focus areas, with the option to establish trial projects and/or conduct research and development to support future trial projects. These focus areas have been identified by the government as priority areas of potential for the application of emerging aviation technology with a particular focus on providing benefits for regional communities.

You may address more than one focus area in your application (for example if your application includes more than one project or if your project touches on multiple focus areas), noting the Department will consider proposals against each of the focus areas addressed. There is no set funding allocation for each focus area, the funding will be used flexibly dependent on the nature of proposals received.

The five focus areas are:

  1. Digital farming
  2. Boosting regional supply chains
  3. Connecting regional communities
  4. Improving outcomes for regional and remote Indigenous communities
  5. Growing manufacturing in emerging aviation technology

You are not required to financially contribute towards the project however, you are encouraged to do so. You should note the nature of your co-contribution as part of your application so we can take it into consideration during the assessment process.

The Securing Raw Materials Program is supporting businesses that relocate to, or expand in, regional Australia and partner with a regionally located university or research organisation to undertake research into, and/or development of, innovative and locally sourced raw material supplies (including establishing new suppliers or products and value adding to existing known supplies).

Round 1 was open to businesses located in capital cities relocating or expanding to regional areas. This round has been broadened to include businesses located in regional areas that will expand to a different regional area to deliver on the program objectives.

The objectives of the program are to relocate/expand businesses in regional Australia to:

  • support research into and/or development of innovative and locally sourced raw material supplies and capitalise on a region’s comparative advantages
  • increase economic activity, diversity and jobs in regional areas, including by establishing new industry sectors, businesses and suppliers
  • support and strengthen partnerships between industry and regional universities and research organisations located in regional areas.

The intended outcomes of the program are:

  • industry growth and economic resilience in regional Australia
  • stronger supply of, and access to, innovative and improved raw materials for industry
  • increased research, investment and economic capacity in Australia’s regions.

Regional Connectivity Program - Round 2 Grant Closes: 27th of January 2022 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $4.6 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=37e9f4d7-946e-42f6-8ef4-70d8da73e662

The Department has committed to improving the VET system by enhancing industry’s role through the establishment of Industry Clusters as separate legal entities. The Department intends for the Industry Clusters to be ‘industry owned and led’. It is contemplated that new entities will be established for the purposes of carrying out the functions of an Industry Cluster, however, consideration will be given to existing organisations where they can demonstrate that they are 'industry owned and led' and capable of delivering on the objectives of the program, as set out in the assessment criteria.

The program intends to establish and fund nine Industry Clusters (although the number and groupings of Industry Clusters will be determined through this grant funding process including the opportunity for applicants to propose alternate arrangements). The number of Industry Clusters is intended to support scale, efficiency and collaboration across the training system, and ensure sufficient funding is available for each cluster.

This grant opportunity will be undertaken in two stages as follows:

Stage 1: Open competitive process
Stage 1 will seek applications from industry leaders, which represent a range of related industry sectors, detailing how they would propose to establish and subsequently operate an Industry Cluster entity.
While applicants will not be expected to have established their governance and administrative arrangements prior to submitting an application, applicants will need to demonstrate:

  • they represent a broad industry-based grouping of related sectors, including clear evidence of industry support;
  • plans to develop the capacity required to deliver all cluster functions;
  • a clear plan for establishing a strong governance structure aligned with these grant guidelines, that balances the interests of all stakeholders; and
  • plans on how they will address / engage in cross sector work with other similar Industry Clusters and the industries within their remit.

Stage 2: Closed non-competitive process
Once successful applicants in Stage 1 have undertaken any initial activities in relation to their Industry Cluster, the Industry Cluster organisation may then participate in the second stage of the grant process, being a closed non-competitive process.  The Industry Cluster organisation is to submit an application detailing how it proposes to carry out the Industry Cluster function. It is expected that this application will be substantially similar to the proposal lodged in response to Stage 1 of the process.

Black Spot Program Grant Closes: Ongoing Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications Further Information: http://investment.infrastructure.gov.au/infrastructure_investment/black_spot/

Road crashes are a major cost to Australians every year. Black Spot projects target those road locations where crashes are occurring. By funding measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at dangerous locations, the programme reduces the risk of crashes. Programmes of this sort are very effective, saving the community many times the cost of the relatively minor road improvements that are implemented

The Black Spot Programme makes an important contribution in reducing the national road toll under the National Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan.

The Australian Government has committed $500 million to the Black Spot Programme from 2014-15 to 2018-19, which includes an additional $200 million over two years from 2015-16 under the Infrastructure Growth Package to improve road safety across the nation.

The Government has announced changes to the programme’s eligibility criteria for 2015-16 and 2016-17 aimed at assisting local communities to compete for this additional funding over the next two years.

Under the new criteria, the minimum Benefit Cost Ratio for proposals has been reduced from 2:1 to 1:1. In addition, the minimum crash history of sites has been reduced from 3 to 2 casualty crashes over five years or 0.13 casualty crashes per kilometre per year over 5 years.

The criteria has also been amended to allow more funding for the proactive treatment of unsafe roads. Consultative Panels will able to allocate up to 40% of funding to sites on the basis of a road safety audit.

The Government has also guaranteed that at least 50 per cent of funding provided over the next two years will be dedicated to fixing roads in regional Australia.
