Grants workshops for textile/clothing/footwear manufacturers

AUSINDUSTRY is offering free workshops to help manufacturers within the textile, clothing and footwear industry apply for Australian Government grants.

Textile, clothing and footwear manufacturers are encouraged to apply for funding under the eighth round of the TCF Small Business Program. The workshops, to be held in Perth, the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart and Launceston, will help the manufacturers improve the applications.

AusIndustry representatives will conduct the workshops to ensure the application process and eligibility requirements are well understood by TCF businesses.

The TCF SBP has already helped 470 businesses, by supporting projects to transform business operations in areas like business strategy and mentoring, marketing and branding, manufacturing process upgrades, e-commerce and export opportunity development.

AusIndustry’s workshops are planned to run from 30 January to early February 2013.
