Qld Small Business Grants

Updated: May 18, 2022

The next round of Qld Grants will open on 4 May 2022. Other Grants follow on 31 May, and around early August (no date as yet).

For those businesses considering an Application, you need to be aware:

  • The business owner must personally make the Application (although we can assist with content such as purpose, a strategic plan, or referrals to specialists in most areas)

  • The grants are oversubscribed and usually close quickly, sometimes the same day as opening, so it is necessary to arrange quotes, draft the Application, etc., well before the opening date.

A Summary of the Grants (Details to come, information is for previous Rounds):

Business Basics, Round 3, $5,000

  • Opens 9am, 4 May 2022

  • Priorities are Coaching, Websites, Business advice, Marketing, Business succession, Cybersafety

These are the basic details from previous Rounds and could be different for the current Rounds. If you intend to apply, allow some time (2 to 3 weeks) to obtain the information required and must be uploaded with the Application. Past experience showed that the Applications lodged on opening day exceeded the Grant Sum Available, so the Round was closed quickly.

We will provide more detailed information on each as it becomes available, and how we can perhaps assist with your project or the application.
