Grants for North West businesses
Grants of up to $25,000 to improve North West beef businesses have been opened by the State Government.
Approved applicants can be reimbursed for a consultant to conduct a business improvement review, develop or update a business plan and help implement improvements.
Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the grants would improve competitiveness of pastoral beef businesses in the Kimberley and Pilbara regions.
“I encourage all commercial cattle producers to capitalise on this fantastic opportunity and create greater growth prospects for their business,” he said.
Mr Redman said 13 commercial beef enterprises had so far accessed the grants for activities relating to herd management, irrigation and key performance indicators for their business.
Agriculture and Food Minister Ken Baston said the new grants were part of a broader initiative to foster market diversity, improved business models and integrated supply chains.
“The Northern Beef Futures project has been supporting and working with industry to capture new market opportunities, particularly in Asia and the Middle East,” he said.
The grants, open until 5pm on April 1, are a component of the four-year $15 million Northern Beef Futures initiative.
