Grants available for NSW Small Business Month events
NSW small businesses are being encouraged to apply for $640,000 worth of grants from the state government to help host events to generate new ideas and connect with fellow entrepreneurs for NSW Small Business Month in 2022.
The grants – up to $2,500 for local councils and $3,500 for chambers of commerce, industry associations and not-for-profit groups – are available to help them organise events for the fifth NSW Small Business Month in March 2022.
The Small Business Minister, Damien Tudehope, said Small Business Month was a unique opportunity to help the state’s hard-working small-business owners by offering events that teach them new skills and inspire them with new ideas.
“Small businesses have been tested like never before with drought, floods, bushfires, the mouse plague and COVID-19. They’ve made enormous sacrifices to get where we are today and I want to acknowledge their hard work, effort and resilience,” Mr Tudehope said.
Applications for event grants open on 1 November, and must be submitted by 10 December with organisations encouraged to get online, review the grant guidelines and start preparing applications now.
Further details on how small businesses and supporters can participate in NSW Small Business Month will be released in the coming weeks. For more information visit smallbusinessmonth.nsw.gov.au
