Please read the following information as it will help you to complete your application.

The DAID Fund offers grants to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) supplying goods or services, or with the potential to supply, to the defence, aerospace, and space sectors. As a Queensland Government initiative, this fund is designed to promote the growth of Queensland’s defence and aerospace capabilities, by supporting SMEs to engage in key capability building measures and pursue global supply chain opportunities.

  • program guidelines for the International and Industry Certification Funding stream
  • frequently asked questions.

You can also read our 10-year Roadmaps and Action Plans for the defence and aerospace sectors and the Space Industry Strategy.

Please note that as part of your application, you will need to upload the following documentation:

  • a project budget that identifies the source of your matched cash contributions (e.g. cash at bank, approved overdraft or loan from an Australian bank, or business accounts showing adequate cash flow)
  • an official quote from an appropriately qualified consultant for all certification-related activities for which a funding application is being made. This may comprise a single quote for all activities or more than one quote where the activities are being undertaken by different consultants

  • financial statements (i.e. profit and loss, balance sheet, statement of case flows) from the previous financial year with accompanying notes to the accounts that demonstrate the financial position of the business, and bear evidence of having been prepared or checked by a qualified accountant (i.e. CPA, CA, or PA qualified).

There are  prompts in the application form for evidence to support your responses.
