Dairy Australia - Dairy information for Australian Dairy Farmers and the industry

Primary content

The Dairy Australia Grant Access Support (GAS) Scheme is an initiative funded by Dairy Australia (DA) which provides financial assistance to Australian dairy processors to engage specialist grant writers and technical consultants to assist with developing submissions for project funding support.

By supporting Australian dairy manufacturers to access the many relevant funding opportunities available to them, the GAS Scheme is designed to encourage implementation of profitable infrastructure projects which sit outside the manufacturer’s normal capital hurdles as well as facilitate increased adoption of innovative, best-practice technologies. The ultimate aim of the Scheme is to advance the competitiveness, profitability and sustainability of the Australian dairy sector by enabling ongoing investment in projects which strengthen Australia’s dairy manufacturing base.

Priority will be given to projects which seek to implement projects with the capacity to improve the sector’s performance with respect to the manufacturing-based targets under the Australian Dairy Industry Council’s Sustainability Framework – namely:

  • Reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity
  • Reduction of consumptive water intensity
  • Reduction of waste to landfill
