There are government grants offered in previous year in Australia. However, all of the options are subject to change annually. If you are considering a grant, make sure that you know what you need to use the funding for and how much you need. This is so that you can sort through the options based on their intended uses and find other that will work for you. Also pay attention to the eligibility requirements, as they are all different. If you have no luck finding something that you can use in Australia, it may be a good idea to expand your search to include national and state level options.
