It'll come as no surprise to any entrepreneur that starting and maintaining a small business can be challenging. Luckily, there are a large number of small business grants in Australia that can help your business to flourish. Find out what these grants are for and if your business is eligible for one (or more) of them below.

What is a small business grant?

A small business grant is a sum of money that is awarded to eligible businesses as either: seed money for a startup, an exemption from or reduction of a certain business cost/fee (for example, tax relief), or cashflow assistance for existing businesses. Small business grants in Australia are provided either by the federal government, state governments, not-for-profits, or certain private businesses and corporations.

Small business grants are non-repayable and do not require a business to relinquish any equity to the grant provider. They are therefore often considered to be attractive forms of business finance.

How do they work?

Essentially, because they don't require repayments, small business grants can be considered as free money. In order to get one, a business owner must meet a certain grant's eligibility criteria, fill out an application and be accepted by whatever entity provides the grant.

Qualifying can be difficult for certain companies. This is because small business grants are usually aimed at specific industry sectors, regions, types of businesses, and community groups. For example, some grants will only be available to Indigenous Australians, others to women, and some to sustainability-led projects or businesses only.

Pros and cons

There are several pros and cons to small business grants:

  • Free money. This is obviously the first and foremost benefit to receiving a small business grant. This is particularly true for businesses that may be struggling with cash flow, and therefore find it more difficult to repay a traditional loan. Some grants even offer substantial sums to eligible businesses.
  • Accessible information. Thanks to the Internet, it's easy to find resources and information regarding what grants are available, who's offering them and where to apply. Finding the right grant for your specific business has never been more straightforward than it is today.
  • Gain business credibility. On top of the free money, your business could gain something else – credibility. This will usually boost your business's visibility, promoting your brand. Grants are often highly coveted, and having your work stand out as something that is of notice to grant providers could hold you in excellent stead.
  • Potential access to further funding. If you have already been awarded a grant, you may find that other organisations are more inclined to provide you with further funding, as they recognise you as a reliable candidate. You may also find it easier to be approved for a business loan later down the line, for the same reason.
  • Time consuming. We've all heard the phrase "nothing in life is free". So, it stands to reason that there's a cost involved with grants – your time. There is often a large amount of paperwork to complete and additional documentation to provide, as well as business plans, demographics of your market and a detailed proposal.
  • Strings-attached. Because grants are often provided by federal or state governments and not-for-profits, you will have to prove how you will use the money to benefit your state, community, etc. This will take a lot of meticulous research and planning. On top of this, you will be required to stick to your plan. Grants often come with restrictions and conditions, so be certain of the route you want to take before submitting your proposal.
  • Tough competition. As mentioned earlier, competition for business grants is fierce. Hundreds of thousands of other businesses are in just the same position as you. Therefore, it's imperative that you make your business stand out. That being said, don't let this competition deter you. Believe in your business and work hard at your application and, with the help of this guide, there's no reason why you can't qualify for a grant.
  • Renewal not guaranteed. Depending on the type of grant that you may qualify for, it may not always be renewed. Is the grant you're applying for a one-off, a guaranteed yearly sum, or do you have to continue to reapply? Ensure that if your funding is not guaranteed that you have the capability to keep your business on track without the grant funding.

How do I apply for a small business grant?

To apply for a specific grant, you must contact the appropriate body and submit your details. To get started, you can click on any of the above links to be taken to the appropriate page, where you can find more information on how to apply. Each grant may require a unique set of information and documentation.

Tips for applying

  • Have a grant strategy. It helps to know which grants you are eligible for ahead of time. This means you can map out an application timeline and systematically address each grant that you want to apply for.
  • Construct an elevator pitch. This is a single-sentence about your company's purpose.
  • Tailor your proposal. Ensure that you meet all of the outlined eligibility criteria and keep your application specific to these criteria. Be sure to include as much information as possible about the market you operate in, your customer base, the skills and experience of your team, etc.
  • Ensure that you have the necessary revenue. If the grant you are applying for requires you to match the grant amount with the same amount of your own revenue, make sure that you have this to hand.
  • Have a thorough business plan. If you don't already have a business plan, make one. If you have one, ensure that it's as up-to-date as possible. For tips on how to create a winning business plan, click here.
  • Consider specific projects. A lot of grants are specific to business projects, as opposed to the business as a whole (though not always). Ensure that you include specific business activities such as product development, making import/export agreements, and recruiting or training staff. Be sure to include details such as market demographics, etc.
  • Answer every application question. Be succinct and answer all the questions on the application as thoroughly as possible.

Alternatives to small business grants

If you find that your business doesn't qualify for a small business grant, there are a number of alternatives:

  • Small business loans. While it isn't "free money", securing finance for your business via a small business loan can often be the ticket to set you on the right track to business growth. To avoid overpaying for your loan, aim to find a loan product that you're eligible for with the lowest interest rate and fees possible. If you're a B2B startup or SME and are unsure that you'll qualify for finance from a traditional lender, invoice financing companies may be able to help you.
  • Peer-to-peer business loans. These platforms work like marketplaces in which potential investors are matched with potential borrowers. Because they have fewer overheads, P2P platforms can offer competitive tailored interest rates, in comparison to the bigger banks. These alternatives to traditional business loans are also risk-based, meaning that businesses without excellent credit histories may still be able to qualify (though they will likely be offered higher rates).
  • Angel investment. Angel investment focuses on high-risk, high-return investment in emerging companies. It can be a great way of financing a small business with strong growth prospects. This is because potential investors will consider the future potential of your business, as well as your current financial performance. Find out more about securing angel investment here.
  • Crowdfunding. Depending on your business model, you may want to consider platforms like Kickstarter, which offer incentives to potential consumers in exchange for funding, to get your business off the ground. There are also equity crowdfunding platforms like VentureCrowd, that offer funding in exchange for company shares.
