You may have already heard, but Round 2 of the Queensland Government's $10,000 Small Business Adaption Grant Program was announced this week.
We assisted several local businesses with submissions for round 1 and have developed a range of resources to help applicants through the detailed process of this grant.
If you're interested in applying for round 2, most of the services we provide are eligible and we'd love to be part of your project to support your business.
This is a fantastic program to help COVID-19 affected businesses get back on their feet through a range of activities which are eligible for funding. These include:
Marketing and communication activities such as videos and photography
Digital strategy development
Capital costs associated with meeting COVID-19 requirements
Financial, Legal and Professional advice
To be eligible, businesses must meet a range of criteria including:
Demonstrating you have experienced a minimum 30% decline since 23 March 2020, over a minimum 1-month period due to the onset and management of COVID-19
Employ staff and have fewer than 20 employees
Have an annual turnover over $75,000 for the 2018–19 or 2019–20 financial year
The full range of eligibility criteria and activities can be found at - https://www.business.qld.gov.au/starting-business/advice-support/grants/adaption
Applications for Round 2 open on July 1st and we are expecting the program to again be very popular over subscribed (Round 1 'sold out' in just 7 days).
***Attention to detail in the grant process is very important including supplying a quote which addresses specific details that are required to be successful***
Even if you don't use our services in your project, we'd be happy to supply an example quote and resources that you can use for your application. Just reply to this email and we'd be happy to send them though.
Note: Successful applicants from round 1 of this program cannot apply for funding under round 2, however if you have submitted a round 1 application but haven't heard back yet, you are eligible to apply for round 2.
If we can be of any other assistance, please just let us know.
