New Small Business Recovery Grant

Small Business Recovery Grant

$3,000 grant to help businesses safely relaunch their operations following the Covid-19 lockdown.

Thousands of small businesses reopening across New South Wales after the Covid-19 shutdown will benefit from funding of up to $3,000 under a new Small Business Recovery Grant. Applications will open on 1 July 2020 to help businesses safely relaunch their operations with funds remaining from the $750 million Small Business Support Fund.

The grants apply only to small businesses listed on Attachment A below, as being highly impacted by the COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement Order 2020.

All other businesses are not eligible for the Small Business Recovery Grant.

Apply online here.

Grant applications are open until 16 August 2020.

The grants can be used to cover marketing and advertising expenses, make fit-out changes and train staff in how to work safely under the current health conditions. The Small Business Recovery Grant can only be used for expenses from 1 July 2020 and where no other Government support is available.
