Who is eligible for funding?
All qualifying levy paying Australian horticulture growers will have access to funding whilst it lasts. Please note that funding will be approved on a case-by-case basis by Hort Connections staff and allocated on a fist come first served basis until funds are exhausted. For local Victorian growers, there is up to $750 reimbursement for eligible expenses whilst Interstate Growers may access up to $1,000.

- To be eligible for funding, you are required to purchase a Grower Conference Access Pass, Perfection Fresh Breakfast and Hort Connections Gala Dinner ticket (which can be later rebated based on bursary approval).
- All flights and accommodation must be booked through the Hort Connections affiliated Corporate Traveller booking portal, accessed through the Hort Connections website Accommodation page. Please provide a booking confirmation document with your application.
