  1. Hi. Im2an electrical sole trader from noosa area. I could definitely use this grant. Do you have to pay the grant back? If so how long do i have untill i have to pay it back?

    1. Hey Jon, You may be eligible! No, you don’t have to pay the money back. It is matched funding so they will contribute 50% of the quotation you submit. We will shoot you an email.
