Grants can often be time-consuming to apply for, but are incredibly rewarding when the hard work pays off.

Here are a few state government grants currently open:

Regional Tourism Investment Fund – Competitive Round

Expressions of interest close on Friday 7 January 2022.

The Regional Tourism Investment Fund is a great opportunity to seek funding for up to $10 million for new and innovative tourism infrastructure projects that will increase visitation, drive private investment, and deliver more jobs in regional Victoria.

It’s open for the private sector, and incorporated and not-for-profit associations in eligible locations.

See the full eligibility requirements, guidelines and submit your interest via the Business Victoria website.

Small Business Energy Saver Program

Applications close Tuesday 31 May 2022.

This program provides small businesses with a significant discount that in some cases may cover up to 100% of the full equipment and installation cost, meaning there’s minimal out of pocket expenses. Check eligibility and apply. 

Regional Jobs Fund

Applications close on Thursday 30 June 2022 unless funds are exhausted prior. 

The $156 million fund will focus on priority projects to meaningfully support regional communities in their immediate response and recovery efforts from COVID-19, address complex local challenges and lay the groundwork for future growth. Check eligibility and apply.
