The Federal Government has announced it is ready to receive applications for funding for research, development and early stage commercialisation of green automotive technologies under its $1.3 billion Green Car Innovation Fund.

The fund will provide assistance, on a co-investment basis, over ten years to design, develop and manufacture low-emission, fuel-efficient cars and components in Australia. It is part of the Federal Government’s $6.2 billion New Car Plan for a Greener Future.

Grants under the fund will be offered on a competitive basis of one dollar of government funding to three dollars of investment from the applicant. The program will be delivered under two streams:

– motor vehicle producers (MVP) will be able to apply for grants of $5 million or more; and

– applicants other than the MVPs will be able to apply for grants of $100,000 or more.

Applications can be lodged at any time and funding will flow from 1 July 2009.
