Small Business Program crashes on day one

4th May 2022

Queensland small businesses have been waiting weeks to apply for the Business Basics Grants Program only to have the website crash minutes after going live.

This should be a huge wake-up call for the State Government.

They were unprepared for the huge demand from small businesses despite advertising the program for weeks.

It shows this State Government is only concerned with promotion and photo-ops, not reality.

Small and family businesses are looking to the future after two years of financial stress.

There needs to be better planning and delivery for these grants programs so support can be accessed without delays.
