Funding is now available for medical products manufacturing under the Modern Manufacturing Initiative (MMI).

We’ve launched the industry-led Medical Products road map today to guide the types of medical products manufacturing projects we will support.
Businesses in other National Manufacturing Priority areas will be able to apply under the MMI once their relevant road map is launched in the coming weeks.
The MMI is the centrepiece of the Government’s $1.5 billion Modern Manufacturing Strategy.
Commonwealth funding will be provided on a dollar-for-dollar co-investment basis, with grant sizes starting from $1m.
Funding opportunities are tied to release of road maps. Today’s announcement is the second, building upon the release of the Space Manufacturing Priority road map last week.
