For several years, the Australian government has issued billions of dollars in grants to local entrepreneurs, businesses, non-profit organizations, and startup ventures. The aim is to see those businesses thrive. One company, Grants Assist, is also playing an important role. From its name, it is evident that Grants Assist aims at ensuring the right individuals and organizations access the right funding from the government. Through a recent press statement, Grants Assist congratulated the few Aussies who are stepping up to get what rightly belongs to them from their government. However, Grants Assist complained about the low turnout of those seeking government funding yet the government allocated sufficient funding for various groups.
“We are happy that many people are now getting to know how the government can help them in their businesses. Each year, we see a rise in the number of those visiting our offices to acquaint themselves with the various grant options given by our government. However, there’s one thing that is of a major concern to us – the number of those who want the grants is still low,” said Grants Assist. According to the organizations, although the government sets aside billions of dollars each year for various startups, only a handful of such startups show up. In the same statement, Grants Assist continues to show a few grant options the government provides.
Some of the grants available include business grants, non-profit grants that are meant for non-profit organizations, industry-specific grants and startup grants aimed at helping promising startup ventures that either fail to secure liquid funds or are stuck because the demand exceeded their budget. To help organizations and individuals acquire the right funding from the government, Grants Assist helps in the primary application, preparation of the necessary documentation, consultancy in understanding the various parts of the application procedure, and accessing the funds.
