Government grants are not the only government assistance programs currently available in Australia. Government grants are lump sums of money offered for specific purposes that people can apply for by writing a proposal to the program they are interested in. The eligibility terms differ from grant to grant as do the intended uses for the money. Many people have been able to benefit from grants to help them pay for costs of their education or to help with their small businesses. There are other government assistance programs. These may include loans or scholarships.
