The Australian Government is inviting applications to apply to deliver activities under the Package Assisting Small Exporters program.

In 2013, the government established the Package Assisting Small Exporters to improve market access for small exporters in the dairy, fish, eggs, grain, plant, horticulture, meat and animal product industries. The program commenced with approximately $10 million available for funding projects that directly benefitted small exporters, particularly those that would improve market access for small exporters. A further $0.45 million was made available from 2017–18 for distribution over the period 2017-18 to 2021-22.

In 2019, the government announced $6.1 million over four years to extend the program to continue to support small exporters to overcome barriers to market access. $5 million is available for distribution over the period 2019-20 to 2022-23.

Under the program, grants are available to organisations and individuals for projects that support small exporters in the dairy, fish, eggs, grain, plant, horticulture, meat and animal products industries to overcome barriers to market access.

The objective of the program is:

  • to assist small exporters in the dairy, fish, eggs, grain, plant, horticulture, meat and animal product industries to overcome barriers to market access.

The intended outcome of the program is:

  • for small exporters (and potential small exporters) to increase their participation in the export sector.
