Local Business and Investment Projects

Fire Station 101 is the home of Ipswich City Council's Local Business and Investment Teams


The Ipswich City Council Small Business Funding Program has been developed as part of the broader range of initiatives implemented by Ipswich City Council (council) to support Ipswich-based small businesses through and post the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The program is a competitive funding process designed as a ‘Quick Response’ cash payment of up to $1,000 (exclusive of GST) per eligible applicant. The funding priorities are to help get Ipswich small businesses back to doing business, whilst also stimulating the local economy.


Do you create social change in our community?

We invite you to put your hand up, be identified and showcased as a positive example of how our business community can do “good” business through innovative change provoking concepts and creating a sustainable give back to our vulnerable community members.

Local business with an innovative idea to adapt but need some funding?

Fire Station101 and Advancing Regional Innovation Program (Ipswich and West Moreton) have partner to provide co-funding opportunities for businesses in the Ipswich Region. Funding pool of $30,000 has collectively been allocated to co-fund businesses being adaptive and innovative during this pandemic and when business returns to usual.
