Grants open for NSW Small Business Month
Rebuild, Recharge, Renew during NSW Small Business Month
Grants of $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.
Other organisations are invited to become a collaboration partner to connect with small businesses, give back to their local business community and promote their services.
Small Business Month is a unique opportunity to help the State’s hardworking small business owners by offering events that teach them new skills, inspire them with new ideas and connect them with their fellow entrepreneurs.
The theme of this Small Business Month is `Rebuild, Recharge, Renew’, which reflects the NSW Government’s determination to help small businesses recover from their recent challenges and build a brighter, stronger future.
