Expressions of Interest are now open for Agriculture Victoria’s recently launched Vic Grown – Regional Grants Activation Program (RAGP) aiming to shine a light on the incredible food and beverages produced in regional Victoria.
Through RAGP, Agriculture Victoria is seeking EOI’s for the delivery of localised activation events that promote and support local consumption of local produce. Think farmers markets, immersive food and beverage festivals, or collaborative tasting sessions that directly engage local communities with producers. The program is targeted at regional bodies and food and fibre groups, with the capacity to deliver these kinds of events.
Funding of up to $70,000 per application is available to support:
- Delivery of a localised activation event with a minimum of five local agribusinesses that meet Vic Grown eligibility
- Activations held between 1 March 2024 to 1 March 2025
- Project management costs (capped at 10% of total eligible project costs)
- Participation fees to local agribusinesses

Applications close 16 February 2024.
