Only one application will be accepted from an individual ABN or financial beneficiary. Successful applicants cannot reapply for this grant program in the future.
Your business must be in the financial position to pay for the approved products and services up front. SMEA will then contribute the matching funds in SMEA marketing dollars to the service provider.
We take these factors into account:
Whilst most COVID Government Grants do not require you to match their funding their eligibility criteria are often more stringent. Typically COVID Grants require you to have suffered a substantial drop in revenue - up to 75% - that you need to prove through providing detailed reports. The Digital Transformation Grant does not require you to demonstrate a loss of revenue. We do not need any financials to approve your application. If you can afford the investment to match the grant then you can qualify. You do not need to be in a specific industry that has been directly impacted - we are happy to work with all types of businesses. Importantly if you do meet the Government Grant requirements it may also be possible to receive the SMEA Digital Transformation Grant. We make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. If you are prepared to invest in your business then we will be there by your side.
