Even if you are already applying to the Queensland government for small business loans, you may apply for any small business grants from other Australian states, if eligible. Alternatively, try looking for funding from the Australian national government. So long as you are also eligible for them. Most small businesses will not simultaneously be eligible for loans and grants from the Queensland and other state governments, however, due to the state focus such government funding programs most often operate under as part of their qualifying conditions.
