Growth Grants are an Entrepreneurs’ Programme grant to help your business grow.
The Entrepreneurs’ Programme provides access to a national network of experienced facilitators. They’ll work with you to improve your business practices, become more competitive, and take advantage of growth opportunities.
The Growth Grant will help you improve specific business areas that your facilitator recommended in your roadmap or plan. You must have received a roadmap or plan before you can apply for a Growth Grant.
You must use the grant to improve the ability and skills of your business to trade. For instance, you can engage external experts to help implement recommendations from the roadmap or plan. You can’t use it to fix problems that are part of the normal running of your business.
You can get up to 50% of eligible project costs. The minimum grant amount is $2500 (excluding GST). The maximum amount is $20,000 (excluding GST).
The grant is for 1 year. For each Growth service you receive, you can only apply once for this grant. You can use the grant to implement some or all of the recommendations in your roadmap or plan.
