There are indeed Australian government grants to start your own small business if you are eligible for these funding programs. So, it is best to determine which grants are open when you are prepared to begin applying for programs. Each offer has its own intended uses and eligibility conditions. So, note these when you are seeking funds. There are offers at the national and state levels as well if there are not choices that appeal to you within the local area. Also note that more general small business grants are common. However, those for specific uses may be rarer. So, look for a more general offer that you may be able to use.
