The Queensland Government is making grants of up to $5000 available to home-based entrepreneurs in what is the first program of its kind in Australia.
Under the Queensland Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow Home Based Business Program funding will be available to stay-at-home-parents seeking to establish or develop home-based businesses.
The government has committed $1 million over three years to support this program with funding of up to $5000 provided to successful applicants.
AusMumpreneur founders Peace Mitchell and Katy Garner have been a key partners in initiating this landmark grant program for Queensland and were excited to hear that this generous package had been officially confirmed at the Queensland budget briefing in Brisbane this week.
“We’re so delighted to see Queensland take the initiative to invest in home-based business. Mumpreneurs are generating millions of dollars for the Australian economy and are nimble and resourceful, able to get unique business ideas off the ground quickly. They’re leading the way in digital innovation, imagine what’s possible with a little extra support to get things moving.” Katy said.
To be eligible for the grant, home-based business owners must have at least one child under 12 in their care for at least 50 per cent of the time or more, have an ABN, be an Australian resident and be based in Queensland.
The first intake will open soon. If you’re interested in applying for this grant or finding out more visit ausmumpreneur.com.
