With the Local Capability Fund for Western Australia

Some great news for Western Australian businesses…
 
The Western Australian Government has recently announced 3 new rounds of the Local Capability Fund (LCF) to assist local businesses, including one to assist organisations with their compliance development.
 
The purpose of the LCF is to assist small and medium enterprises (SME’s) to increase their capacity and competitiveness as suppliers of products, services and works to major projects and other markets.
 
The LCF typically provides funding assistance for activities such as planning, improvements to internal infrastructure, plant and equipment and training.
 
One of the new rounds includes National and International Standards. The objective of the National and International Standards Compliance Round is to assist Western Australian SMEs with the costs of engaging external expertise to carry out the implementation and third-party certification of national and international standards. 
 
The level of funding support under the National and International Standards Compliance Round of the LCF is 75% of eligible costs up to a maximum of $20,000 (excluding GST) per successful applicant for compliance development.
 
The round closes on 31 January 2022.
