QLD Government announces 3 business grants

In an effort to make Queensland the place to be for small business, three new grants programs worth $25 million over two years have been announced by the Queensland Government.

The announcement comes during Small Business Month; the theme of which is ‘bounce back better’.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and are a vital part of the Palaszczuk Government’s economic recovery plan to get more Queenslanders into jobs,” said the Minister for Employment and Small Business, Di Farmer.

It’s hoped the new grants will assist more businesses to recover following the challenges brought upon by the Covid-19 pandemic. “We’ve already helped tens of thousands of businesses through COVID-19 and these new grants will assist more businesses to recover and pursue opportunities to grow and employ more people” said Minister Farmer.
