Run in partnership with the Regional Australia Institute, the grant program is part of NBN’s commitment to lift the digital capability of people and business in regional Australia.

In last year’s round, a host of applications were received from businesses right across regional Australia and this year, there is a total of $125,000 in funding up for grabs to support regional and remote businesses drive the development and adoption of their ideas.

Businesses that are seeking to harness the benefits of the NBN network to develop products or solutions that improve digital participation, productivity or social outcomes for regional and remote Australians are encouraged to apply.

The program covers seven categories – agriculture, arts, education, health, indigenous business, tourism, and women in regional business – with each winner to receive $15,000.

There will also be an overall Innovate with NBN Champion who will be awarded an addi-tional $20,000.

In 2020, Ravenshoe-based company Black Box took home the agriculture grant and last year, Gathar Jodie Mlikota, the general manager of a Cairns-based company, was named the woman in regional business winner.

The closing date for applications is midnight Sunday 20 November.
