Posted on 29.06.2020

Round 2 opening 1 July 2020

The Queensland Government is extending the Small Business COVID-19 Adaption Grant Program. As part of Stage 2 of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy – Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs, up to $100 million is being made available to deliver a second round of grants, with half of this funding specifically earmarked for regional small businesses located outside of South East Queensland.

Round 2 will open on 1 July 2020.

The objective of this program is to support small businesses subject to closure or highly impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) shutdown restrictions announced by the Queensland Government, to adapt and sustain their operations, and build resilience.

The available grant amount is a minimum of $2,000 and up to a maximum of $10,000 per eligible small or micro business and can be used towards the following:

  • financial, legal or other professional advice to support business sustainability and diversification
  • continuing to meet business operational costs including utilities, council rates, rent, telecommunication charges, insurance fees, licensing or franchise fees
  • strategic planning, financial counselling or business coaching aligned to business development and diversification
  • building the business through marketing and communications activities (e.g. content development – 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
  • capital costs associated with meeting COVID-19 safety requirements
  • specialised digital equipment or business specific software to move business operations online (e.g. logistics program for online ordering).

Note: Grant funds can be used towards any of the above activities occurring from 23 March 2020 onwards, keeping in mind the project must be completed within a maximum of 6 months from the date of approval.

Round 2 will open on 1 July 2020.
