Queensland agricultural exporters and organisations have until 31 January to apply for a grant from the Agricultural Trade and Market Access Cooperation (ATMAC) Program.

ATMAC grants are coordinated by the federal Department of Agriculture and support projects that contribute to Australia’s agricultural trade with overseas markets.

The grants range from $20,000 to $400,000.

Projects must open, improve and/or maintain access to overseas markets for Australian agricultural products by building stronger relationships with trading partners, neighbouring countries and international organisations.

Priorities in this round of funding include helping to realise market access opportunities under recently ratified free trade agreements.

To be eligible to apply for an ATMAC grant, you must be a:

  • company
  • incorporated association
  • Indigenous corporation
  • local government
  • corporate state or territory entity
  • non-corporate state or territory entity
  • non-corporate state or territory statutory authority
  • partnership
  • corporate Commonwealth entity
  • non-corporate Commonwealth statutory authority
  • Commonwealth company
  • cooperative
  • international entity
  • sole trader
  • statutory entity
  • trustee on behalf of a trust.

To learn more or to apply, visit the ATMAC homepage. Applications close Friday 31 January.

Agriculture is identified as one of Queensland’s export strengths in the Queensland Trade and Investment Strategy 2017–2022.
