Details of the next round of the popular Business Boost grants have been announced by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training.
Businesses can register their interest in applying from 9am on 12 August through to 12 midnight on 19 August.
Previous recipients of a Business Boost grant have used the funds to introduce an online booking system, redevelop websites, develop a customised workplace health and safety system, or train their staff.
To be eligible, small businesses need to employ less than 20 employees and have had a turnover between $300,000 and $600,000 in the last financial year.
Businesses will need to co-contribute at least 30% of the total cost of their proposed project, with grant funding paid to successful small businesses following completion of the project.
A new two-stage application process has been introduced to ensure all small businesses that are interested in this grant have an equal chance of being selected to apply. The first step is to register interest to apply via the online form to provide basic information.
Once registrations close, a number of businesses will be selected through a ballot process to complete a full application. All valid registrations of interest will have an equal chance of being selected.
