Queensland Government Grants
The Queensland Government has a question wizard to assist individuals and organisations in finding the right grant.
Grants and other funding programs are available from the Australian, state and territory governments and in some cases from local councils.
Generally there are few grants available for starting a business, and those that are available are competitive or are only available for specific circumstances. However, there are grants and other assistance available for business activities such as expanding your business, research and development, innovation and exporting.
First Home Owners' Grant
The First Home Owner Grant is a national scheme funded by the states and territories and administered under their own legislation.
Under the scheme, a one-off grant of up to $7000 is payable to first home owners that satisfy all the eligibility criteria.
