Hawkers' Productivity Grant

About The Grant

The Hawkers' Productivity Grant (HPG) is a funding support to encourage individual stallholders to be more productive with the use of automation equipment.  The HPG will co-fund the purchase of suitable automation equipment by stallholders, to help them achieve higher productivity in preparing and serving of sale items to customers through the use of technology.

Funding Support

Eligible stallholder can claim 80% of the equipment unit cost (excluding GST) on a reimbursement basis, capped at $5,000 over three years.  Equipment that has been funded by other grant schemes will not be supported.
