Protect Australia’s industries and heritage – Biosecurity Business Grants open

Biosecurity activities are controls or actions that minimise the risk of exotic pests, weeds and diseases entering Australia to protect our $60 billion agriculture export industries, our unique environment, cultural and heritage values, tourism industries and way of life.

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry is inviting applications from Indigenous businesses, Indigenous organisations or other organisations supporting Indigenous businesses, to apply for a grant under Round 2 of the Biosecurity Business Grants program.

The Biosecurity Business Grants program is running over 3 years from 2020–21 to 2022–23 and delivered through the Indigenous Rangers Biosecurity Program.

The objective of the program is to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in northern Australia to view biosecurity as a business opportunity through the development of innovative business ideas.

Applications close: 9:00pm (AEDT) Monday 14 November 2022

Note: applicants who applied in Round 1 may also apply for Round 2
