Gunnedah Shire businesses with a fresh idea are encouraged to apply for Round 3 of the Business Partner Program.

The Business Partner Program is a Gunnedah Shire Council initiative that has helped hundreds of local businesses over the years with grants to encourage business growth and innovation, and to support employment.

Chair of the Business Partner Advisory Group Cr Ann Luke said the program was a great opportunity for Gunnedah Shire businesses.

“The aim of the Business Partner Program is to support new and expanding businesses with partial funding for their project,” Cr Luke said.

“It has helped a huge range of diverse initiatives over the years, from websites to new projects for existing businesses, from beauty to diagnostics, and accounting to engineering.

“Through helping businesses to achieve their goals, we are also helping the Gunnedah Shire economy.

“We encourage business owners with fresh ideas that will assist in local employment to apply.”

Details about the Business Partner Program, including guidelines and expression of interest forms, are available on the Gunnedah Shire Council website: https://www.gunnedah.nsw.gov.au/index.php/business/business-support/business-grants-funding/item/959-business-partner-program

Applications open on Wednesday, February 1, and close at 12pm on Tuesday, February 28. Businesses can apply for up to 75% of the total project cost.
