COFFS Harbour businesses can learn how to apply for the $1 billion Clean Technology Investment Programs.

Duty Senator for Cowper, Matt Thistlethwaite encouraged local manufacturers to attend the information session hosted by AusIndustry on Thursday, May 10 at Bonville Golf Resort.

Sen. Thistlethwaite said that if eligible, businesses should also apply for a grant to help transform their business.

"The Clean Technology Investment Programs will provide assistance to help manufacturers make the transition to a low carbon economy and assist businesses to invest in energy efficient capital equipment and low emissions technologies, processes and products," Sen. Thistlethwaite said.

The two programs - the $800 million Clean Technology Investment Program and the $200 million Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program - are part of the Gillard Labor Government's Clean Energy Future package.

"The Clean Technology Investment Programs will support jobs and provide incentives for manufacturers to become more efficient, more competitive and more sustainable," the Labor Senator said.

The Clean Technology Investment Programs, together with other initiatives like the Jobs and Competitiveness Program, the Steel Transformation Plan and the Coal Sector Jobs Package, provide transitional assistance for business and industry.

"I encourage all local manufacturers to attend the sessions," he said.

"The Clean Technology Investment Programs present an opportunity for businesses of all sizes to receive support for investing in their own futures."
