The LCF typically provides funding assistance on a dollar-for-dollar basis for activities such as making improvements to internal infrastructure, plant and equipment, meeting pre-qualification requirements for supply-chain entry and buying and upgrading essential equipment.

The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation administers the Local Capability Fund.
