The Queensland Government is making grants of up to $5000.00 available to home-based entrepreneurs in what is the first program of its kind in Australia.
Under the Queensland entrepreneurs of Tomorrow Home Based Business Program funding will be available to stay-at-home-parents seeking to establish or develop home based businesses.
The Government has committed $1 Million over three years to support this program with funding of up to $5000.00 provided to successful applicants.
Funding of up to $5,000 (excluding GST) will be provided in two stages:
- Stage one: Grants of up to $2,500 will be provided to stay-at-home parents to hire a professional consultant to develop a business action plan for their home-based business.
- Stage two: Dollar for dollar funding of up to $2,500 will be provided to successful stage one recipients to improve or establish business as detailed in the business action plan developed in stage one.
Grant payments will be paid directly to the consultant or service provider on successful completion of the project.
