There are small business assistance programs provided for eligible, local small businesses by the government of Queensland, most notable small business government loans and grants. The state and local government bodies in Australia also have programs to help eligible small business owners, and the national government programs are available to people across Australia, including Queensland. Getting a grant or loan requires you meet the qualifications for the specific program you wish to apply for, after you find an Queensland government small business assistance program to suit your needs. Loans are general provided at preferable rates than those of bank loans, and have different qualifications. So, applicants rejected by the bank may have a chance at receiving government assistance instead. Grants can be challenging to attain. However, they do not need to be repaid, which makes them even more preferred than loans.
