Accelerating Trade Grants now available for e-commerce and online promotion

Tasmanian businesses looking to grow or re-establish their ‘off-island’ trade of products or services, are encouraged to apply for funding under the Accelerating Trade Grant Programme, which for the first time supports new e-commerce opportunities and increased online promotion.

Local operators can apply for up to $10,000 in matched funding to expand their presence and introduce Tasmanian products and services to the world with activities that will be completed by June 2021.

The Tasmanian Government has announced that additional funding has been committed to the Accelerating Trade Grant Programme which has been updated to recognise and reflect the impact of COVID-19.

The co-contribution scheme is in line with initiative 4.1 under the Tasmanian Trade Strategy 2019-2025, aimed at helping Tasmanian businesses collaborate, expand their presence and introduce Tasmanian products and services to mainland Australia and the rest of the world.

Eligibility requirements can be viewed on the Department of State Growth website. For more information or an application form, contact: trade@stategrowth.tas.gov.au
