Major Project Status

Grant Closes: Ongoing Value: Government Support Run By: Major Projects Facilitation Agency Further Information: https://business.gov.au/grants-and-programs/major-project-status

Major Project Status is the Australian Government’s recognition of the national significance of a project – for economic growth, employment or for regional Australia.

If your project gets Major Project Status, you’ll get extra support from the Major Projects Facilitation Agency (MPFA). This includes help with coordination and facilitation of Commonwealth Government approvals. Your project may need a range of approvals such as environmental, biosecurity or foreign investment approvals.

Most projects have Major Project Status for 3 years.

If approved, you will get:

  • A single entry point for Commonwealth Government approvals
  • Project support and coordination
  • Help with state and territory approvals

To be eligible, the project must have an estimated investment of more than $50 million and meet the following criteria:

  1. The project is of strategic significance to Australia
  2. The project requires Commonwealth Government approvals or involvement
  3. The project has sufficient financial resources and is commercially viable
