Building Projects Support Program - Round 2

The Tasmanian Government recognises the difficulty in getting some construction projects up and going in a COVID-19 environment.

The second $10 million round of this program will assist in getting some of these projects off the ground and provide a future pipeline for the Tasmanian construction sector and support jobs.

This second round will provide grants of up to 25 per cent (to a maximum of $1 million) of the total construction cost for projects with a minimum construction cost of $1 million. Projects must be able to commence within 12 months of receiving a grant. Applications outside these parameters may be eligible on a case-by-case basis and considered within the merit-based process.

The program is a competitive merit based program. Those projects that can best demonstrate economic benefit through the construction phase, enduring benefits to the Tasmanian economy such as through employment, deliver community and social benefit and demonstrate impact due to COVID-19 will be preferred.

Round 2 of the Building Projects Support Program will open for applications at 2:00pm on 25 August 2021 and close at 5:00pm on 6 October 2021.

Guidelines

Please read the guidelines carefully to make sure you are eligible before you apply.

Application Process

The Department of State Growth uses an online grants management system called SmartyGrants. This system is easy to use and accessible via mobile phone, tablet and computer.

The online platform allows applicants to apply for a grant at any time while the program is open. It also allows the department to send notifications throughout the grant application and funding period.

Once you have read the guidelines, please complete and lodge an application online via SmartyGrants, accessible from the Business Tasmania website.

Following submission of an application via SmartyGrants, applicants will receive an automatic receipt which will include details of the application and a unique application ID.

Applicants who are unable to apply online via SmartyGrants can access a manual application form by calling Business Tasmania on 1800 440 026.
