Are you eligible?
The NSW Government is providing a grant for small businesses in eligible local government areas (LGAs) that have been impacted by the closure of the NSW and Victorian border.
The grant is designed to assist those small businesses on the Southern border with short term cash flow assistance to help them survive or adapt to the changed circumstances. The grant is available to be used for eligible expenses that have been incurred following the introduction of the NSW and VIC border permit scheme on 8 July 2020 and for which no other government support is available.
The grant amount is available in two tiers of $5,000 and $10,000 depending on the businesses decline in turnover.
Eligible LGA’s include the following:
The grant can be applied for from the 8th September 2020 through Service NSW. Further information on eligibility criteria will be available prior to this date, see link to Service NSW here.
