How do I apply for a small business grant?

Dream big and you could receive a grant to help your business address local issues like housing affordability, unemployment, sustainability, mental health issues or even help boost your local economy. As long as your dream has a direct positive impact on an Australian community we want to hear from you.

So if you've been dreaming of starting a project or need more resources to get the job done, a small business grant could be the helping hand your local business needs to make a lasting and positive change in your community.

Follow the links to apply and tell us about your business, your community, your dream and how $10,000 would help make a difference.


Does your business qualify?

To qualify your dream must aim to tackle a local or social issue in Australian communities, and the business receiving the grant must also be:

  • a registered Australian business
  • based in Australia with funds being spent in Australia
  • a small to medium sized business with less than 200 employees
  • able to be undertaken in the next 12 months

If your dream is shortlisted to the top 10, your business must also provide documents that validate the viability of the business.

Sunsuper's Dreams for a Better World is open to all Australian residents aged 18 years or older at the time of entry. You don't need to be a Sunsuper member to enter.

You'll receive a confirmation email that your dream has been accepted. If your dream doesn't meet the guidelines, we'll let you know.
