Automotive Diversification Programme
At a glance
If your business is part of the Australian automotive supply chain, this programme can help you move into other areas of manufacturing.
The Automotive Diversification Programme (ADP) is a $20 million grant which includes $18 million for competitive merit-based grants. It will support projects that supply products or services to:
- customers in the Australian and international non-automotive industry
- customers in the international automotive industry.
The ADP will help Australian automotive supply chain companies to diversify out of the domestic automotive manufacturing sector. Companies can apply for a grant to help with capital equipment costs. The ADP aims to help to retain manufacturing capability in Australia.
The ADP is part of the $155 million Growth Fund, which was established to support employees, businesses and regions affected by the closure of Australia’s car manufacturing industry by 2017.
