Business Grant Writing

What are Grants?

Grants are specified amounts of money given to businesses to help them achieve a particular goal or do a particular thing. They include one-off grants and ongoing grant programs.

Many government agencies offer grant programs. Some are for specific industries or regions. Others are for any industry but may have a particular focus, such as employment or economic growth.

Grant funding is public money and the government has stringent processes to ensure funds are spent fairly and equitably. Each grant will have a rigorous assessment process.
