The Export Marketing Development Grants

The Australian Government Export Marketing Development Grants (EMDG) scheme was set up to offer financial support to exporting businesses. Current and aspiring export businesses are encouraged to apply for assistance to develop and expand their export markets. Austrade administers the program and it is open to a wide range of industries.

If your business is eligible, VC Group can help you navigate the grant process.

Does my business qualify for the Export Marketing Development Grants scheme?

Before you apply for the EMDG you need to consider if your business fulfils the government’s eligibility criteria related to your business structure and expenditure.

You qualify for the EMDG if you are:

  • an Australian individual
  • a partnership
  • a company
  • an association
  • a cooperative
  • a statutory corporation or trust

Businesses are also required to have spent at least $15,000 on eligible export expenses in a financial year.
