Greater Dandenong City Council is launching a Buy Local Business Grant Program to support the economic growth of local businesses.
The program is open to all eligible Greater Dandenong businesses with funding of up to $1,000 available per business.
Mayor, Cr Eden Foster said Council recognises that our local businesses are our biggest economic drivers.
“Council appreciates the contribution our local businesses make to enhance our economy. We are pleased to be able to give back to help those who are eligible for grant funding to thrive,” the Mayor said.
The grant money awarded can be used towards new professional services to help enhance business growth, including for website development, marketing and design services, human resources and training services. Successful grant recipients must use a local Greater Dandenong supplier.
Applications open at 9am on Tuesday 11 April and are to be completed online.
The grant program will close when allocated funds have been exhausted or at 5pm on Friday 28 April.
