There are four key steps in applying for a Clean Technology Innovation Program grant. The diagram below shows the steps involved (on the left) and information and online tools available to applicants (on the right)
1. Determining your eligibility
You should read the Customer Information Guide to determine your eligibility for the Clean Technology Innovation Program. The Customer Information Guide provides detailed information about the program, including guidance on determining your eligibility and preparing materials for the application process.
2. Registration of Interest form
After determining your eligibility, the next step in applying for the Clean Technology Innovation Program is completing an online Registration of Interest form. The form is used to provide information to an AusIndustry Customer Service Manager about you and your planned project.
3. Discuss your project with AusIndustry
Once you have submitted your Registration of Interest form, an AusIndustry Customer Service Manager will contact you to discuss your planned project. If the Customer Service Manager believes you meet the eligibility requirements and your project is meritorious, you will be invited to complete an online application form. Being invited to complete an online application form is not a guarantee that your application will be successful in gaining funding.
4. Application Form
You will be invited to complete an online application form after a Registration of Interest form has been submitted and you have discussed your project with an AusIndustry Customer Service Manager to confirm eligibility and suitability for the Clean Technology Innovation Program. Applicants should review the sample Application Form.
All applicants must provide an Accountant’s Declaration as evidence that they can match the grant provided on a dollar for dollar basis throughout the life of the project. For projects with grant amounts of more than $500,000, applicants will also need to provide the following:
- Financial statements for the past 3 completed financial years
- Year to date financial statements for the current financial year
- Details of their project funding strategy, indicating the sources of funding for their share of the project. This can be in the form of balance sheets, bank statements, cash flow documents, loan agreements, investor agreements, confirmed purchase orders or other documents.
