Innovate with nbn Grants Program now open

Applications for the 2023 Innovate with nbn Grants Program are now open.

Now in its third year, the initiative aims to help regional based businesses and individuals transform their great ideas into game-changing achievements.

Run in partnership with the Regional Australia Institute (RAI), the Innovate with nbn Grants Program is part of our commitment to lift the digital capability of people and business in regional Australia.

Last year we received many applications from businesses right across regional Australia who are doing wonderful things digitally enabled through the nbn.

There is $125,000 in total funding up for grabs to support regional and remote businesses drive the development and adoption of their ideas.

Across seven categories – Agriculture, Arts, Education, Health, Indigenous Business, Tourism, and Women in Regional Business – each winner receives $15,000.

The overall Innovate with nbn Champion will be awarded an additional $20,000 grant to help take their idea to the next level.

We are looking for businesses that are harnessing the benefits of the nbn network to develop products or solutions that improve digital participation, productivity or social outcomes for regional and remote Australians.

The closing date for applications is midnight Friday 29th September.
