If your small business relies upon its software maintenance in order to remain competitive, it is entirely possible that you may be able to apply for the Australian government small business grant funding to keep your software up to date. When applying to the Australian grant program you are eligible for, you will want to create a proposal in which you present how crucial software maintenance is to your business. If approved, you may get some or all of the money you want for this purpose.
