The TFGA has been designated as the administrative body for this support package and will report directly to AgriGrowth Tasmania who has oversight of this project.
$230,000 over 3 years has been allocated for working with the organics industry to assist farmers, producers, and agri-food businesses interested in transitioning to organic production methods, certification and market development. The Organics project will consist of a small grants program as well as informative and educational resources. Further details on these components will be updated as they become current.
In the first year the program will deliver up to $65,550.00 in funding through the Advancing Organic Agribusiness Grants Program.
Advancing Organic Agribusiness Grants Program is open for applications for projects that can prove enhancement to the Tasmanian Organics industry. Round One applications are now being accepted through until 5pm Wednesday 30th September 2020.
