The City of Melbourne is looking to give grants to small music businesses

To help your music business reach new heights.

If you’re starting or have already started your own venue, record label, festival, music publication or creative business located in Melbourne, you’d be silly not to consider applying for one of the City of Melbourne’s small business grants. The grant program provides financial assistance to businesses from all sectors, so it could be the perfect opportunity to kickstart your next big idea.

The grants offer up to $30,000 to businesses who are just starting out, want to expand, or want to enter an overseas market for the first time.

To be eligible for the grant, your business must be located within the municipality of Melbourne and have a valid ABN. Applications for the first round of grants close Tuesday April 30. The second round of grants will open on Monday August 5 if you need a little more time to prepare.
