Business Growth Grants

The Australian Government is providing eligible businesses a specific grant to grow knowledge, including environmental sustainability.

After receiving an Entrepreneurs' Infrastructure Programme Business Evaluation businesses are entitled to apply to apply for a Business Growth Grant. This grant is provided for projects which build on the internal capability of a business and embed new knowledge into a business. The Business Growth Grant will reimburse up to half the cost of engaging a consultant(s), and up to $20,000 (excluding GST).

Eligible businesses may be reimbursed up to 50% of our already competitive service charge if successful with their Business Growth Grant application.

Services which may be eligible include: the development of ISO 14001 environmental management systems; compliance reviews; programs to address legal non-compliance, improve sustainability and reduce environmental impacts; training; environmental risk management; and, general environmental auditing.

The application process is managed by Australian businesses and whereby we'll be happy to provide one of the two project proposals required for an application.
