The EATP program will call for proposals utilising emerging aviation technology to improve services in regional and remote communities, across one or more of five key focus areas:
- Digital Farming;
- Boosting Regional Supply Chains;
- Connecting Regional Communities;
- Improving health outcomes for remote Indigenous Communities; and
- Growing manufacturing in Emerging Aviation Technology.
The EATP program is centred on a partnerships approach and potential proponents are encouraged to engage with local communities, local or state/territory government agencies, and other parties during the development and implementation of projects. The Department will also play a key role as a project partner, helping to secure successful outcomes for the program.
Feedback is welcome on the Forecast Grant Opportunity. Any feedback should be provided to EATP@infrastructure.gov.au by 11 October 2021.
