The criteria to get government grants for small business depends on the particular grant that an individual is applying for. The Australian government has many grants and loans programs in place that meet particular needs of the small business. For example, one can get government grants for small business at the federal level or the state level, if they can qualify and meet the criteria and mandate of the particular program of interest.
