Grant programs are designed by the government to stimulate economic activity, support industry to create jobs, develop new products and services, improve competitiveness and business sustainability, and increase export activity. 

There are nearly 3,000 Government grant programs on offer every year in Australia – close to $77b in funding – and staying up to date can be difficult and time-consuming. 

Government grant funding is available to support businesses that can demonstrate substantial benefits to Australia’s domestic economy. Job creation, export focus, new technology or capability development are all areas that state and federal governments are keen to support. Sectors like Agriculture, Defence, Energy, Food & Beverage, Health, Medtech and Life Sciences, Mining, Renewables and Low Emissions Technologies, Resources and Critical Minerals, and Space are often targets for government funding and incentives.
