Hume Small Business Grants
If you have an idea and seeking financial support, Hume City Council encourage you to apply for a Hume City Small Business Grant. Applications are now open, and this funding is available until the $250,000 is expended.
Networking Groups In Hume
Hume City has many established networking groups that can provide support for any business owner whether they be start up, home based, retail, small, medium or large.
Supporting our local businesses
Hume's local businesses have been responding quickly to the changing demand by offering alternative methods of pick-up and delivery, exploring online options, increased hygiene measures and working with their staff and customers following advice surrounding social distancing.
To support Hume businesses, we've started a list of local businesses doing new things or altering their way of working to ensure they can continue delivering and providing for our community. If you are a business in Hume City that’s being innovative through these challenging times, get in touch with us today at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Instagram @DiscoverHume.
You can also support local businesses by shopping locally.
