While a large number of small business loans and grants have broader national applications, it often benefits an applicant to first look for assistance specific to their state. These may include Northern Territory in your case. Many applicants like to seek out grants whenever possible, since grants do not require repayment once awarded. However, a sizable number of companies do qualify for small business loans, which are often more widely available than grants. The applicant must determine which would be more appropriate for their needs.
