To be eligible you must:

    • form a sufficiently significant proportion of the corporation’s overall activities as to merit it being described as a trading corporation; or

We can only accept applications if:

  • your project is located in an inner regional, outer regional, remote or very remote area as defined by the Australian Statistical Geographic Standard (ASGS) Remoteness Area.
  • you provide an Accountant Declaration that confirms you are a trading corporation as defined in section 4.1 and can fund any project costs not met by the grant.
    You must use the Accountant Declaration form available below and add as an attachment to your application.
