Funding will be available for projects which will make better use of existing timber supplies, add value to existing products, create new products, and/or reduce the industry’s carbon footprint.

The Commonwealth will fund up to 40% of your overall project value, up to $5 million (Commonwealth contribution). This grant will fund:

  • innovative technology to:
    • diversify existing product lines
    • improve efficiency in existing product lines
    • improve carbon efficiency, or
  • minor capital works to support installation of innovative technology, such as:
    • minor improvements to electrical infrastructure
    • minor improvements to building infrastructure

This grant opportunity is intended to support facilities to:

  • better use the available wood supplies
  • increase production efficiency
  • add value to existing products
  • create new products, and/or
  • reduce the industry’s carbon emissions.

The grants will enable wood processing facilities to use innovative technologies in their production to supply more of Australia’s wood demands into the future.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • fund privately owned wood processing facilities (for example, timber, pulp or wood fibre) to increase and/or diversify production capabilities or capacity. For example, the ability to process smaller logs or install new technology to create new products
  • allow greater use of Australia’s sustainably managed timber
  • support the forestry and wood processing industries to continue to reduce their carbon footprint.
