Frequently asked questions

Are registrations of interest (ROI) still open?

No, ROI submissions closed at 5:00 pm AEDT on 28 February 2023.  

Can I still apply for funding if I didn’t participate in the registration of Interest (ROI)?

Yes, you can apply for funding when the applications open. Participating in the ROI was not a prerequisite for applying for funding.

Can organisations outside of NSW submit an ROI?

Yes, interstate and international organisations were able to participate in the ROI. However, projects submitted in the ROI submissions must be located in NSW.

Once the funding initiatives are open for applications, the lead applicant must meet certain eligibility criteria including, but not limited to:

  • have an Australian Business Number (ABN)
  • be registered for GST
  • have at least $20 million in public liability insurance.

I have a research and development/demonstration/pilot project that requires funding. Can I receive funding for this?

Initially, we will be prioritising funding investment-ready and commercially viable projects. It is unlikely we will fund research and development or pilot stage projects. 

If you are in the research and development or pilot stages, you may be eligible for some of our other funding programs. To find out more, visit our programs, grants and schemes page.


Will priority be given to projects in regional NSW?

At this stage, we are not prioritising projects in certain areas over others. Funding is available to all eligible projects in NSW. Each project funding opportunity will be carefully considered by our review panel.

However, geographic proximity to other NSW initiatives might be of strategic significance and add merit to the assessment of your funding application. Our other initiatives include the special activation precincts, renewable energy zones, clean manufacturing precincts and innovation hubs.

Was there a webinar and how can I watch it?

Yes, we held an online information session for applicants and industry stakeholders to learn more about the upcoming funding opportunities.
