Are you looking for a grant to help fund your business? If the grant you’re interested in is offered by a government agency – don’t pay for the information!

Protect your business from government grant scams

Here are some key points to keep in mind when looking for a grant from the government:

  • Government websites will never ask you to pay money for access to government grant information – be wary of any websites that offers grant-related services (such as providing information about the grant) in exchange for a fee.
  • Government grants are awarded based on merit – you can’t pay money for special access or consideration.
  • It’s possible to pay a third party provider to help you with writing your grant application, however it’s important to choose a reputable service.

Where can I find government grant information for free?

All available government grants can be freely accessed through official government sources, such as the business.gov.au Grants and Assistance.

Once you find a grant that suits your business, you can contact the administering agency, or search their website for more information.

You can also use Advisory Services to find free or low cost business advisers to discuss your individual business circumstances and seek advice when applying for a government grant.

How can I tell if I’m using a government website?

Some websites may try to imitate government websites by using things like:

  • official looking images
  • government logos
  • misleading web addresses e.g. www.officialgovtgrants.com.au.

To check if a website is officially affiliated with government, make sure the web address uses a ‘.gov.au’ extension in their URL. Only official government websites can have the ‘.gov.au’ extension.
