Meat & Livestock Australia
Livestock Export Collaborative
Funding Program
The Live Export Collaborative Funding (Co-Funding) Program is an initiative of the MLA and LiveCorp Livestock Export Program (LEP) to support exporters of Australian livestock to international markets.

The aim of this Program is to assist exporters deliver continuous animal welfare improvements, develop the performance and efficiency of livestock through their overseas supply chains and to facilitate the uptake of R&D outcomes.

The Program is designed to facilitate projects that are additional to normal commercial arrangements and which are outside of daily and routine in-market exporter staff or consultant activities. That is, projects that will stimulate and facilitate broader industry and trade benefit, as well as enhancing the efficiency of individual commercial operators.

The Co-Funding Program is implemented on a fiscal year basis. Applications for the 2019-20 Program close on 31 July 2019. Applications received after this date will be placed on our waiting list when and if budget becomes available throughout the year.
