Queensland COVID-19 $10,000 Small Business Adaptation Grants

Its time for plan C!

Round two opens 1st July!!

Are you a Queensland based business? 🙂  The QLD Government is extending the Small Business COVID-19 Adaption Grant Program as part of Stage 2 of the Queensland Economic recovery Strategy. $10,000 grants to support businesses to adapt, take their offer online and bounce back strong from the COVID-19 crisis.

The program is available to eligible businesses throughout Queensland. For round 2, funding is being equally divided between regional Queensland and South East Queensland (SEQ). You can check your eligibility here. 

A few weeks ago we wrote a page about adjusting your marketing strategy to handle the impact of COVID-19, that has been ready thousands of time and we have been able to help business with ideas on ways to adjust their strategy.

    • 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.

      Matter Solutions is committed to helping Queensland businesses and we want to see you succeed – If we are able to help you adapt your business, we will provide you with a 20% bonus on all Digital Marketing Activities and WordPress websites services.
