The grant that can help fund your new website

The time to make your new website a reality is now!

The Small Business Digital Grants Program Round 5 has now opened and closes at 5pm on 8 October 2018.

If you've been holding out on creating your new website, or just haven't quite got around to it, now is your time to charge forward and to take advantage of small business funding on offer from the Queensland Government – matched funding of up to $10,000.

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

 

Available funding

Matched 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 minimum grant funding is $1,000. The business must show how the digital technology or service purchased and adopted will enhance the digital capabilities of their business, and help them to be more competitive and employ more staff.

Applicants must not begin the project or pay for the product(s) or service(s), in part or full, without confirmation that the project has been approved.

 

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible the business must:

  • have fewer than 20 employees at the time of applying for the grant
  • have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and be registered for GST
  • have Queensland headquarters
  • have a turnover of $2 million or less in the last financial year
  • not be insolvent or have owners/directors that are an undischarged bankrupt.
