Business Improvement Grant NT

The Business Improvement Grant provides businesses with funding to purchase goods and services to make improvements to their premises.
Open date: 13 Apr 2020 12:00 AM AEST

What do you get?

Funding of up to $20,000.

Who is this for?

Northern Territory businesses.


As part of the Northern Territory (NT) government's COVID-19 recovery package, funding will be available for businesses to purchase goods and services to make permanent physical improvements to their premises (land and/or building).

The goods and services sought must be from an eligible Territory based service provider who has registered through the Tradie/Contractor Program.

Any improvements made must help to improve business operations and customer experience.

The first $10,000 will be paid as a grant with no co-contribution required. A further $10,000 will be available provided the business contributes $10,000 of their own.

What are the eligibility criteria?

To be eligible, your business must be Territory enterprise which:

  • is a legal entity and holds a valid Australian business number (ABN) as of the date the program is open
  • is operating in the NT in either owned or leased premises
  • has a significant permanent presence in the NT
  • employs NT residents (this can be you if you are a sole trader)
