Export Market Development Grant

What is the Export Market Development Grant?

The Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) scheme is a key Australian Government financial assistance program for aspiring and current exporters of goods, services, events, intellectual property or software that substantially originated from Australia.

Tier 2: Exporting and expanding

For businesses who are exporting and expanding export promotion activities with funding up to $80,000 per financial year for three years.

Tier 3: Exporting, expanding and strategic shift

For businesses that are exporting and expanding export promotion activities and making a strategic shift, for example targeting a new market or a new type of customer. Grant funding of up to $150,000 per financial year for three years.
