Job Accelerator Grant Scheme

You can register for a Job Accelerator Grant of up to $10,000 for every new job created in your business, or up to $15,000 for every new eligible apprentice or trainee position created.

The grant aims to create jobs now and build a strong workforce for the future. 

To qualify for the Job Accelerator Grant, your business needs to:

  • employ a new position between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2018 (inclusive)
  • maintain the new position for at least 12 months
  • have Australian taxable wages below $5 million, across the group
  • register the new employee within 90 days of their commencement

Your grant will be distributed over two years and will be paid at the first and second anniversary date of employment. The additional grant for eligible apprentices and trainees will also be distributed over two years - up to $2500 per year.
