Change to the process for submission of Primary Growth Partnership proposals

Published 05 February 2014, from Ministry of Primary Industries

Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has announced changes to the application process for Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) proposals.

Since the launch of the PGP in 2009, the MPI has operated annual funding rounds, where organisations can submit new PGP programme proposals for the MPI to consider during a particular period each year.

The process has now changed so that organisations may submit proposals at any time (i.e. they will no longer be holding funding rounds). 

The PGP is focused on innovation and is dependent on opportunities identified by industry that will drive the future success of the primary industries. This includes ambitious growth opportunities or overcoming current challenges or issues. 

If you or someone you know has an innovative initiative that will benefit the primary industries, the MPI would like to hear from you.

Before drafting a proposal, contact the PGP team to determine whether your initiative is likely to be eligible for the PGP and how to progress further.

Information on eligibility for the PGP and how to apply is on the MPI website here.

If you have any further questions, please email pgp@mpi.govt.nz
