Crop insurance research grants are an initiative of the Rural Assistance Package and are intended to support the development of risk management products such as multi-peril crop insurance in Queensland.
Guidelines for crop insurance research grants
The purpose of this scheme is to provide grants for research projects that aim to improve the availability of industry production data useful in the development of risk management products like multi-peril crop insurance.
Available funding per application
Groups are invited to submit an application for a one-off grant of up to $100,000 (excluding GST) which may be part, or all, of the financial cost of the research project.
Approval of applications is conditional on the Queensland Government having available funding. The Queensland Government reserves the right to decline applications for any reason.
Projects must be completed within 12 months of the date of approval of the project unless otherwise approved in writing by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
