National Product Stewardship Investment Fund - 2020


The objectives of this grant opportunity are to support organisations across Australia to:

  • accelerate work on new industry-led product stewardship schemes, and
  • improve the rates of recycling across new and existing schemes

There is $14 million available for this grant opportunity. The minimum grant is $300,000 and the maximum grant is $1 million.

You can use your grant for one or more of the following activities:

  • business case development
  • scheme design
  • scheme implementation


To be eligible you must have an Australian business number (ABN) and be one of the following incorporated entities:

  • an incorporated not for profit organisation
  • an incorporated association
  • a company
  • a company limited by guarantee

If you’re a scheme administrator of a regulated federal or state
government product stewardship scheme, you’re eligible if you’re one of
the above entities and your proposed project is not related to a
regulated scheme.

We can only accept applications where you can provide evidence from
your board (or chief executive officer or equivalent if there is no
board) that the project is supported, and that you can complete the
project and meet the costs of the project not covered by grant funding.

Applications close 21 August 2020 at 5pm.
