Still time to apply for Business Partner Program Round Two

October 15, 2021

Round Two of Gunnedah Shire Council’s 2021/22 Business Partner Program is now open and local businesses are invited to apply for a slice of funding.

Chair of the Business Partner Program Advisory Group Cr Ann Luke said the Business Partner Program has been designed to help maximise the potential of local businesses.

“Gunnedah businesses have been extremely resilient throughout the pandemic and thankfully, many are beginning to recover from the impacts,” Cr Luke said.

“These grants will help build our economic resilience by supporting new businesses on their start-up journey and assist existing businesses to enhance and grow their operations.

“We have also updated the guidelines to strengthen the program, with a key focus on encouraging business expansion and employment outcomes.

“From smaller scale items such as a website upgrade, to a game changing project that will bring growth to our Shire, we are open to applications from all businesses. I hope we can help a wide range of organisations capitalise on new opportunities.”

Applications for the latest round of the Business Partner Program will close at midnight on Sunday, October 31, 2021. For guidelines and to apply, visit and click on the “Business & Industry” tab and then “Business Grants & Funding”.
