Submission for TFIA funding

I have submitted my proposal for funding  for the Blackwood Growers Cooperative under the TFIA Economic Diversification Funding Stream.

Submissions close today at 5pm. I’ve been waiting over 2 years for this moment. The submission can be found here:

To date neither the State government, the Special Council nor the forest industry seem to have developed any plan for the future of the forest industry in Tasmania around which any of the TFIA funding can be made. The TFIA document itself certainly provides no vision/plan for the future of the industry. I’m especially disappointed that private forest growers appear to have not taken advantage of the situation to advance their cause. So this is a very chaotic and random situation with lots of conflicting and competing interests. We’ll see what happens.
