Export assistance and funding

There are a number of organisations who also provide assistance or funding to exporters, or those companies seeking help to start exporting.


Grants & Assistance Finder is a free service provided by www.business.gov.au. It allows businesses to search for grants and assistance that is available to them by state or territory, an extensive keyword search, and a question and answer section to narrow the search. It provides details on each listed program including which businesses may be eligible, closing dates for applications, and a direct link to more information on the administering agency's website.
