The CDG defrays 70% of qualifying project costs such as consultancy, training, certification and equipment costs. This grant is intended to support large scale upgrading projects in 10 different areas, such as increasing productivity, process improvement, product development and market access.
There is no cap at the moment on the maximum claim amount. However, claim amounts of $30,000 and below (i.e. for project costs of approximately $45,000 and below) have a simplified application process compared to claims of higher amounts.
