$250000 grants to build Aussie TCF future

Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) companies can partner with the Australian Government and receive at least $250,000 to make their business stronger, greener and more competitive.

Opening the second TCF Strategic Capability Program funding round, Innovation Minister Senator Kim Carr urged TCF manufacturers to innovate so they could thrive in a low carbon economy.

"Though the Strategic Capability Program TCF industries can build their capability, help strengthen supply chains and capture opportunities in green innovation," Senator Carr said.

"In the first round, the Government partnered with ten companies to progress exciting and visionary projects such as a nanotechnology textile manufacturing plant and a new textile roofing material that converts sunlight to electricity.

"Another project has created a manufacturing and training hub which is helping small TCF businesses grow by giving them access to the latest technology and know-how.

"TCF is an important part of our manufacturing sector. It employs more than 45,000 people - many in regional Australia. Increasing capability will ultimately translate into better skills and more jobs."

For this round of funding, the Government is looking for applications that show innovation, collaboration, market access, business improvement, skills development, environmental sustainability and ethical practices.

Consortia applications led by TCF businesses or industry bodies are encouraged.

The closing date for applications is 5 August 2011. Details of workshops will be provided on the AusIndustry website shortly.
