Has your business closed or been highly impacted by COVID-19? You may be eligible to apply for $10,000 to assist you.

The QLD Government opened up applications for Round 2 of the Small Business COVID-19 Adaption Grant on Wednesday 1 July, and although new applications are no longer being accepted for SEQ businesses, they are still accepting applications for those businesses located in Regional QLD.

What will be funded?

In recognition of the significant impacts of COVID-19 on small businesses, the funding can be used towards the following:

  • Building your business through marketing and communications activities (e.g. content development in the form of web pages, mobile apps, visual and audio media etc.).
  • Digital/technological strategy development.
  • Digital training or re-training and up-skilling employees to adapt to new business models.
  • Specialised digital equipment or business specific software to move business operations online (e.g. logistics program for online ordering).
