Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Grants
Defence-related businesses may be eligible for a grant of up to $1 million to invest in projects that build capabilities aligned with Defence’s stated Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities.
The Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Grants aim to ensure Australian businesses have the capacity and resilience to support Defence’s most critical capabilities.
To be eligible for this grant, you must be an Australian small-to-medium sized business. Grants may be used to fund capital equipment (including specialist software and security infrastructure), design and engineering, or workforce training and accreditations. Grants range from $50,000 to $1 million and are provided on a 50:50 matched funding basis. Decisions about investment will be driven by Defence capability needs.
