Small Business eCommerce Grant *closed*

Our Small Business eCommerce Grant was opened during 2020 for Glenorchy small retail businesses access fast response funding to help cover the costs of setting up an e-commerce platform to sell goods online.

It was very encouraging to see small businesses striving to find new ways online to connect with their customers under COVID-19 restrictions. Many small business owners were able to cover the associated fees and costs with moving their business online with the help of grant funding.

The Small Business eCommerce Grant is an initiative of the Economic Development team. For further enquiries please call us on (03) 6216 6800 or email us at

Can Do Community Grants *closed*

Our Can Do Community Grants provided quick response funding in 2020 of up to $1,000 to support Glenorchy community groups and organisations as they reconnect and look at ways to provide social inclusion for our community.

The grants continue to support community-delivered projects that help connect people emerging from difficult COVID-19 restrictions.
