Project funding ranges between $20,000 up to $100,000 for a one or two year project, and is allocated on a competitive basis to projects which offer clear benefits to Western Australian grain growers. 

Around $300,000 in funding was made available by COGGO in 2017 for four projects. Details on past projects funded can be found on the COGGO website.

The COGGO Research Fund is financed through a voluntary levy collected from Western Australian grain growers who are members of COGGO with the cooperation of grain acquisition and marketing companies.  All WA grain growers are eligible to become members of COGGO. 

The Grain Industry Association of WA (GIWA) administers the COGGO Research Fund on behalf of COGGO. Further information is available by emailing coggoresearchfund@giwa.org.au or by phoning (08) 6262 2128.
