ELIGIBLE Victorian organizations in the cattle, sheep, goat, pig and beekeeping sectors now have until Friday 26 November to apply for funding through the Livestock Biosecurity Funds – Grant Programme.
Grants are available to fund projects that prevent, monitor and control disease, thereby improving animal health, biosecurity and market access for the benefit of Victoria’s livestock industries.
Agriculture Victoria executive director Sally Fensling said the Livestock Biosecurity Funds – Grant Program benefits the livestock industries and agriculture more broadly in Victoria.
“Grants are available for projects that provide innovative solutions, use emerging technologies, and address livestock biosecurity issues, needs or gaps for these local industries,” Ms. Fensling said.
“This program shows collaboration and shared responsibility between government and industry on biosecurity, and champions projects that aim to strengthen our biosecurity in Victoria.”
Applications are invited from private sector companies, universities and research institutes, cooperatives, government agencies and local authorities and incorporated associations.
Any organization wishing to apply should consider the guidelines and eligibility criteria, review the relevant statement of strategic intent and complete the online application form.
“With the extension of the application deadline, even more eligible organizations can apply for funding that will support important projects that benefit our livestock industries,” said Ms. Fensling.
Applications will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, November 26, 2021. For more information, click here or call the Customer Contact Center on 136 186.
