Capability Improvement Grants

You may be eligible for a Capability Improvement Grant if your CDIC business adviser makes business improvement recommendations as part of an advisory or facilitation service.

A Capability Improvement Grant will reimburse you for up to half the cost of engaging a consultant or expert to implement the eligible recommendations.

Eligible recommendations cover, but are not limited to:

  • business strategies, commercialisation and supply chain management
  • HR strategies, workforce planning and training
  • quality assurance and risk management
  • production and operational improvements
  • marketing, branding and communication
  • financial management systems
  • exploring new markets and market intelligence
  • environmental sustainability
  • product and service development
  • mentoring and coaching
  • skills and training for existing workforce.

The maximum Capability Improvement Grant is $250,000 per SME. The minimum grant amount is $5,000.

The CDIC Program Guidelines define the eligible recommendations and exclusions, and set out the administrative arrangements for the grants.
