Small Business Digital Grants Program

The Small Business Digital Grants Program provides small businesses with access to digital technologies and services to enable them to work smarter, engage with the global economy and make the most of online business opportunities arising from digital disruption.

Available funding

Matching funding of up to $10,000 (excluding GST) may be provided to eligible businesses for the purchase of hardware, software and services (such as digital coaching). 

Projects proposed in your application must clearly demonstrate how the product or service will significantly enhance the digital capabilities of the business and how they will impact on the growth of the business (be more competitive and employ more staff).


Your expected growth must be realistic and probable. You may be asked to provide evidence in this

The digital technology or service must fall under one of four identified priority areas:

  • content development (web pages, mobile apps, visual and audio media etc.)

  • receiving payments or selling online

  • specialised digital technology or business specific software 

  • digital planning, marketing strategy development, and digital training.

Payment will be made directly to the business on completion of the project and on presentation of proof of payment for the product or service. The value of the grant payment will be increased to compensate for any GST.
