Applications for the latest round of Moon to Mars Supply Chain Capability Improvement Grants are now open. 

Grants from A$250,000 up to A$1 million to fund up to 75 per cent of eligible project expenditure are available. 

This program provides Australian businesses with funds to build capacity to deliver products and services into domestic and international space industry supply chains that could support Moon to Mars activities.

These grants are designed to strengthen Australia's local space manufacturing industry by helping businesses develop cutting-edge technologies and create new partnerships.

Support for the industry

The Australian Space Agency supports the growth of the sector through a range of programs, which connect Australian business and research organisations with international space agencies and the broader space ecosystem.  

This can include backing businesses to:

  • develop a product from an adjacent industry, such as manufacturing and resources, to support the space sector
  • improve or qualify an existing product to meet a supplier standard for an international space company 
  • buy, lease, construct, install or commission equipment, including specialist software.
