The government has grants especially for small businesses in Australia to use to meet their needs. There are grants for new business owners who need funds to cover their initial start up costs. There are also programs for existing business owners to use to make improvements and expansions to help their business now and in the future. If you do start looking for a grant from the government, make sure you know what you need to use the funding for, and compare your needs with the intended uses of the grant. Also note the eligibility requirements. This is because they differ for each.
