The federal government of Australia has a national funding program to help people open and operate their small businesses all across Australia. There are many grants available under this program, coming from the different departments and agencies that operate under federal government funding. The individual government department, as grantor, issues funds to a successful applicant, whom is designated as the federal government grantee. There are many successful grantee recipients each year under this program.
