Small-Scale and Craft Program

Through the 2018 election commitment ‘Taking Our Local Produce to the World’, the Victorian Government is supporting small-scale and craft agribusinesses across Victoria to grow, increase market opportunities for high-quality, high-value produce and strengthen Victoria’s regional food offerings to deliver flow-on benefits for jobs and tourism.

The Small-Scale and Craft Program is a four-year program that builds on targeting businesses looking to scale-up operations, diversify product lines and expand outreach.

Two streams of funding are currently open under the program:

Stream One is open for applications via the ‘Apply now’ button on this page and will close on Friday 6 December 2019.

Stream Two is open for expressions of interest (EOI) only and close on Tuesday 31 December 2019. Visit the How do I apply? section on the webpage for details.
