Business Grants Fund

In 2021 the City of Greater Bendigo announced a $729,000 Business Grants Fund. The Business Grants Fund has been massively popular, receiving a total 343 applications to the value of over $2.64 million.

Due to the number of applications, the funding was highly competitive. An independent panel scored applications individually and as a group to make the final recommendations for funding.

104 applications have been approved including six precinct grants that will help groups of businesses with collaborative projects.

All grant applicants have been sent an email notifying them of the outcome of their submission on Friday 15 October. Successful applicants will have until March 31 to acquit their grants. If you have questions about the Business Grants Fund you can visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
