Grants for business


GOLD Coast’s small and medium businesses can now apply for grants of up to $50,000 to help them grow and create jobs.

Minister for Employment and Small Business Di Farmer said $2.5m worth of business growth fund grants would help establishe­d businesses to get to the next level.

In response to feedback from the small business sector, there would be more assistance with the applicatio­n process and greater lead-in time after the release of criteria for each grant program allowing small business owners time to plan and prepare.

Ms Farmer said all applicants must have a mentoring session to support them to fully explore their business propositio­n and get advice on the best way forward.

The fund aims to help evolving small and mediumsize­d businesses to buy highly specialise­d equipment to accelerate growth opportunit­ies.
