"If you have never heard of a CRM then you should talk to us as all businesses should have one, especially if they are serious about growth and great customer service" ~ David Ligtenberg - CEO & Digital Growth Strategist 

How much money do you need to co-contribute? 

Successful applicants must co-contribute at least 30% of the total project costs. In summary, your minimum contribution is $3,215 ex GST and if you want the full $15K ex GST then you would need to invest $6,429 ex GST, which would be a $21,429 ex GST project. Your project can cost more but these are the minimum and max thresholds. 

The Business Boost Grants program will not fund projects with a total cost of less than $10,715 (excluding GST) or payments made before the approval date (you must be approved before you pay for grant-funded project activities).

The table below shows the breakdown of total project costs and the co-contribution amounts.

Total project costs (excluding GST) $10,715 $21,429*
Your contribution (at least 30% of total project costs) $3,215 $3,215 $6,429*
