New Grants

The Australian Moon to Mars Supply Chain Capability Improvement Grants provide Australian businesses with grant funds to build capacity to deliver products and services into domestic and/or international space industry supply chains that could support Moon to Mars activities.

The objectives are as follows:

  • To grow Australian industry’s capability and capacity to support NASA’s endeavour to go forward to the Moon and then on to Mars
  • To grow the participation of Australian companies in domestic and/or international space supply chains that could support Moon to Mars activities
  • To grow the skills, capabilities and capacity of the Australian space industry.

Applications for intake 11 are now open and will close on 16 July 2024 5:00pm AEST.

Grant Amount

Grants from $250,000 up to $1 million to fund up to 75% of eligible project expenditure.

Eligibility

To be eligible you must:

  • have an Australian business number (ABN)
  • be registered for the Goods and Services Tax (GST)
  • be an entity incorporated in Australia and a trading corporation

Applications will only be accepted if the following conditions are met:

  • Proof of clear evidence that demonstrates you have a domestic and/or international space supply chain opportunity
  • Proof of evidence from your board (or chief executive officer or equivalent if there is no board) that the project is supported, and that you can complete the project and meet the costs of the project not covered by grant funding
  • Provide an accountant declaration that confirms you are a trading corporation and can fund your share of the project costs, including any ineligible expenditure. An accountant declaration template is available on business.gov.au and GrantConnect. If you do not use this template, you must include equivalent information and the declaration in your own document

Joint applications are acceptable, provided you have a lead organisation who is the main driver of the project and is eligible to apply.
