CYBER+ALT Grant Scheme

Scheme Objective

This incentive seeks to assist SMEs through non-repayable grants to part-finance investment that will enhance their overall level of security and resilience in order to be in a better position to handle cyber threats and be proactive to meet future challenges. This will improve the capacity of the local organisations whilst increasing the level of investment made in cybersecurity locally.


Eligible Organisations

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).



This scheme is co-funded through the Digital Europe Programme (DEP) (50%) and National Funds (50%). Eligible projects will be part-financed up to 80% of the cost for investment in Malta, for a maximum grant of up to €60,000 per project. The allocated budget for this scheme is set at €2,000,000.
