The grant, sourced from the Strategic Site Readiness Programme under the Strategic Outreach and Attraction Reserve Fund, aims to facilitate investment-ready sites and bolster economic development.

Funds will be disbursed as performance-based reimbursements, primarily focusing on infrastructure development, including roads, communications infrastructure, and power supply to the site.
