Each round of the Business Basics grants program has specific information to help you prepare and apply for a grant, and if successful, manage your grant.

The Business Basics grants program provides support to businesses to increase core skills and adopt best practice.

This support includes funded activities in 5 priorities:

  1. Training and coaching
  2. Website build or upgrades
  3. Professional business advice
  4. Strategic marketing services
  5. Business continuity and succession.

The program is administered by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT).

SEQ and regional Queensland funding available

For this round, there are 2 funding streams based on what Local Government Area (LGA) eligible businesses are headquartered. These LGAs are grouped into either South East Queensland or regional Queensland.

You may be eligible for a single up-front fixed grant payment of $5,000 (excluding GST).

The grant is for funding activities from the above 5 priorities.

We will not fund activities with either:

  • a total cost of less than $5,000 (excluding GST)
  • payments made before the approval date (you must be approved before you pay for grant-funded activities).
