Grants

The Queensland Government is committed to the growth and success of small business in Queensland.

Under the Advancing Queensland Small Business Strategy 2016-20 three grant programs are available:

Business Growth Fund

The Business Growth Fund Program provides targeted assistance for small and medium businesses that demonstrate high-growth and employment aspirations. The fund will enable successful applicants to purchase and implement specialised equipment or services to help them seize growth opportunities.

Funding of up to $50,000 (excluding GST) is available for eligible businesses to purchase and implement highly specialised equipment or services. These purchases should enable businesses to move to the next stage of growth.

Successful applicants must provide a co-contribution of 25% to 50% of the total project cost. The government contribution will be determined by an assessment panel.

Visit Business Queensland for more information on this fund.

Small Business Digital Grants

The Small Business Digital Grants Program provides small businesses with access to digital technologies and services to enable them to work smarter, engage with the global economy and make the most of online business opportunities arising from digital disruption.

Matching funding of up to $10,000 (excluding GST) may be provided to eligible businesses for the purchase of hardware, software and services (such as digital coaching). The business must show that the digital technology or service purchased and adopted will enhance the digital capabilities of their business and help them be more competitive and employ more staff.
