Business owners across the State can now enjoy the same convenience as individuals when trying to navigate the range of financial help available from the NSW Government with more than 500 grant and funding offerings accessible from one easy-to-use webpage. The NSW Grants and Funding Finder is a one-stop shop for people to locate the financial support they need, when they need it, by bringing together savings, rebates and budget relief from 46 separate government websites into one place.
Available to individuals since December 2021, the tool has now been enhanced to allow more than 515,000 businesses with a Service NSW Business Profile to log in and discover customised support opportunities, such as the $1000 SafeWork small business rebate. The finder also makes support more accessible for 2.15 million people – or one in four NSW residents – who speak a language other than English at home, with all content on nsw.gov.au translated into multiple languages.
Navigating the digital tool is easily done by filtering grants by keyword, category and location to access tailored support options from disaster recovery grants available in specific suburbs to cost of living measures like Toll Relief or the Family Energy Rebate. The finder is part of a broader project to make it easier for people and businesses to find information, complete tasks and provide feedback through a single location at nsw.gov.au. It has been developed by the Department of Customer Service in partnership with the Department of Regional NSW and Service NSW.

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government, Jihad Dib said:
“This is another great example of practical solutions to challenges people face because we know how time poor people are and how difficult it can be to navigate different government websites. We are making it easier for everyone to access more than 500 grants across 46 agencies by bringing them together in a single page at nsw.gov.au.”
“It’s one thing to have the grants but another to ensure people are aware of them and can access them and with so many people doing it tough right now, we want to make sure no one misses out on the support they need. Whether it’s a small business owner or a single parent, there is budget relief available for almost everyone.”
Minister for Small Business, Steve Kamper said:
“This is a great initiative that will help businesses save both time and money by allowing them to easily connect with support that is right for them.”
“The NSW Government is committed to making life for businesses easier. Through the finder, businesses will be able to access a list of grants and funding opportunities that are tailored to their industry and needs.”
