Businesses can only apply for one grant stream.
This Stream supports businesses that have engaged an apprentice/trainee formally and are receiving Federal Government support. The apprentice/trainee must be at the end of their apprenticeship/traineeship and funding is for one employee. Grant is for up to $10,000.
This Stream is applicable to eligible businesses with a future bulk recruitment need. This Stream is available where there is an identified need for a minimum of five positions. Grant is for up to $10,000 per jobseeker.
This Stream will provide for Council to match existing wage subsidies via a grant paid by jobactive and Disability Employment Services (DES) providers, by extending the employment period duration from 6 months to 12 months. The funding is for one employee. Grants range from $1,650 up to $10,000.
Only one successful application is accepted for the Hume Business Employment Grants per business.

Pro-rata grants are provided for part-time roles. To attract the full subsidy, full time employment is classified as 35 hours per week.
