Like a financial genie rising from the Arabian sands and granting three wishes, the Queensland Government has announced three new small business grants programs based on direct feedback received from the sector.
Worth over $25 million over the next 2 years, these grants aim to target specific demographics and are being rolled out as a result of data collected from small business owners through the Small Business Roadshow which revealed that support programs were essential to assist Queensland businesses at different stages of their lifecycles.
What’s on offer?
The following grants will be available to eligible Queensland small businesses:
|BUSINESS BASICS GRANT||To support new and emerging businesses to increase core capabilities and adopt current best practice.||Up to $5,000||May 31, 2021|
|BUSINESS BOOST GRANT||To help small businesses to improve their efficiency and productivity through organisational development and upgrades through automated software and CRM systems. Grants can be used for website development and upgrades, strategic marketing, training and coaching, advisory services and planning for business continuity and succession.||Up to $15,000||Late July 2021|
|BUSINESS GROWTH FUND GRANT||To allow businesses to buy highly specialised equipment to seize and accelerate growth opportunities.||Up to $50,000||May 11, 2021|
