The NT Government are offering funding of up to $4,000 to eligible businesses for upgrading or creating new websites and Darwin Web Design are approved consultants under this scheme.
The Digital Solutions Program is part of the NT Government's Business Growth Programs. The program was offered by the "Department of Business" in previous years and has been carried over to the new "Business and Innovation NT | Department of Trade, Business and Innovation". In addition to businesses, organisations that identify as a not for profit or registered charity with public benevolent institution tax concessions are also eligible for the program.
