Council grants help businesses thrive in Frankston City

Monday 17 February 2020

The Invest Frankston Business Grants Program is supporting seven local businesses to achieve their goals in 2020.

Frankston City Mayor, Cr Sandra Mayer, met with the successful business owners earlier this month.

“Since applications opened in August, it has been so inspiring to hear from businesses across the city about their aspirations for the future,” Cr Mayer said.

“It was great to meet this year’s recipients and I’m so proud that Council has been able to support them to make their dreams a reality.”

Cr Mayer said the community benefits of the program were far reaching.

“The business grants benefit our local economy through creating jobs and ensure our businesses are right up there with the best in their field.”

“Whether businesses are starting out, expanding, renovating, hiring or buying new equipment, we know these grants will make a huge difference.”

Since it began in 2012, the annual program has awarded grants to 33 businesses which have gone on to support the creation of more than 600 jobs and contribute more than $212 million to the local economy.  

This year’s recipients are expected to support the creation of 72 additional jobs, and contribute a further $15.6 million.
