Description:

The Supply Chain Resilience Initiative provides up to $2 million to establish or scale a manufacturing capability or a related activity to address supply chain vulnerabilities for a critical product or input identified in the Sovereign Manufacturing Capability Plan.

Applicants should demonstrate how their project:

  • builds a better understanding of critical supply chains
  • works with industry to identify supply options to address vulnerabilities
  • addresses vulnerabilities identified in the Sovereign Manufacturing Capability Plan 
  • incentivises Australian businesses to invest in capabilities through new equipment, technology, skills and processes. 

Successful applicants and projects will contribute to the program’s goals. The program aims to:

  • improve Australia’s resilience to future supply chain shocks
  • facilitate diversification of supply options and increase investment in the economy 
  • enable diversification into export markets and reduce reliance on domestic markets
  • improve collaboration between domestic and international manufacturers and suppliers
  • mitigate supply chain risks for critical products 
  • enhance visibility and transparency of the supply chain for critical products
  • accelerate digitalisation and deeper integration of technology 
  • optimise supply chain performance.
