How we assess applications

Timelines for reviewing Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) applications and how we notify applicants.


EMDG is changing

The information on this page is relevant for Rounds 1, 2 and 3. Changes are coming for Round 4. We will communicate this information when details, including guidelines, are finalised and released. To get regular updates, subscribe to the EMDG Update newsletter.


We check your Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) application to ensure it meets the eligibility criteria.

We will request more information if:

  • you don’t give enough information in the application
  • we need clarification.

Timeline for reviewing applications

We will assess your application and advise you of the outcome. The assessment process may take several months depending on the volume of applications we receive in a round.

If you are eligible, we will provide you with a grant agreement for you to accept via our EMDG online portal. You can also log on to check the status of your application.

We will notify you of an outcome. If you are successful we will issue you a grant agreement to sign when it is ready. You will need to view and accept your grant agreement via the portal.
