Queensland Government unlocks $10M of manufacturing grant funding

30 March 2023

Queensland manufacturers have access to $10 million in funding, under Round 3 of the Queensland Government’s recently announced Manufacturing Hubs Grant Program.

The MHGP gives local manufacturers a new opportunity to get financial help for business-expanding initiatives, which will create more good jobs and better services in the region.

The funding boost, which was secured in the 2022/23 Queensland Budget, meant even more manufacturers would have financial support as they modernised and transitioned to manufacturing 4.0 processes.

These grants are an opportunity for manufacturers to become more productive, build advanced manufacturing capabilities and create the jobs of the future through:

  • technology adoption
  • skills and training
  • business development
  • advanced robotic manufacturing hub services.

Grants between $10,000 and $500,000 are available for eligible manufacturing small to medium enterprises in the Cairns, Townsville, Central Queensland, Mackay and the Gold Coast regions.

To date, the MHGP has awarded more than $13 million to co-fund 49 projects in regional areas, including for business development, technology adoption, skills and training across the five eligible regions throughout Queensland.

Following a review of Rounds 1 and 2, the application process for Round 3 has been simplified to ensure as many people as possible can access grant funding.
