In order to maximise the local impact of this program a local panel of businesses has been shortlisted through a competitive EOI process and each business is able to provide services in one of the 11 categories listed below.  A total of 35 x $2,000 (+gst) vouchers are available which can be redeemed at the businesses on this panel.

If your business could do with a bit of assistance, simply browse through the categories to find a supplier that can help you with what you need, and when ready you can APPLY HERE

  • - Have a business listing on the Maribyrnong Localised platform
  • - Be located within the City of Maribyrnong Municipal boundaries
  • - Be financially viable
