Grant help for small business

Owning and running your own business can sometimes feel like a really lonely affair – there is only one of you in it.  It’s always a pleasant surprise to find that some of those tax dollars we pay are funneled back to us in the form of grants for small business.  Federal, State and even local governments have initiatives that are aimed to help new or established businesses grow and succeed. The grants are not generally in a large amounts of cold hard cash that you can use to pay the wages for a year.  There are rules to follow and usually you have to match dollar for dollar and report regularly on progress but if you are prepared to do the paperwork there is money to be had to help you build your business.  At present the Queensland government has several types of grants that can be accessed ranging from matching funding up to $10,000 (ex GST) for mentoring and business coaching to Digital grants for the purchase of hardware, software and services. You might even be able to get your website updated now. Accelerate Small Business Grants – put in applications now Digital Grants Program – round 2 applications opens on 8 March 2017
