Generally there are few grants available for starting a business, and those that are available are competitive or are only available for specific circumstances. However, there are grants and other assistance available for business activities such as expanding your business, research and development, innovation and exporting.

Beware of scammers who call offering fake grants from a fake government department.
Scammers may claim you have received a government grant and then request a fee to release the grant funds to you. They may also request $4000 to ‘contribute to charities to pay off government debt’.
Be alert—scammers claiming to represent the fictitious “Australian Government Grants Department” may fool you into believing they are legitimate as they may already have your personal details.
