Application Round Four of Primary Growth Partnership Closes

Fourteen proposals have been received by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) in the fourth funding round of the Primary Growth Partnership (PGP).

The proposals come from the red meat, wool, horticulture, dairy and forestry sectors with one cross sector bid. Collectively, the proposals are seeking around $257 million in PGP funds.

Eligible proposals will now be reviewed by the Investment Advisory Panel (IAP) for consideration against the eligibility rules and assessment criteria, and a decision made on which proposals should progress further through the process.

The IAP will inform applicants of the Round Four results in early December 2010.

The next application round will occur in the first half of 2011. When a round is opened, it will be announced on the MAF PGP website (www.maf.govt.nz/pgp).
