Finegrain matching grants
‘Finegrain’ businesses are small scale, diverse and innovative businesses that are likely to be engaged in specialist retail, hospitality and entertainment or will otherwise encourage activation of under-used spaces in city laneways and plazas with business activity that is currently undersupplied or non-existent in the city centre.
The City of Sydney has been running a matched grants program of up to $30,000 for our finegrain businesses since 2008.
The program has supported new small businesses to locate in central Sydney laneways, as well as new, unique and innovative businesses to establish in, or relocate to central Sydney.
The Finegrain matching grants program has been very successful in supporting new business and achieving strong activation of central Sydney with a range of niche, small scale businesses. As we want to ensure we continue to best support small business, the Finegrain matching grants program is currently being reviewed and applications for this program will not be considered while this review is underway.
