1) Business Costs Assistance Program
This second round of the Business Costs Assistance Program has been allocated $190.01 million, and it provides $2,500 grants for eligible employing and non-employing businesses in sectors most impacted. This includes businesses operating in an industry that cannot operate under the circuit breaker restrictions and which cannot work remotely.
This program should help eligible businesses with costs incurred as a result of the circuit breaker action. For example, businesses may have incurred costs through loss of perishable food or produce and cancelled bookings.
More information in relation to the eligibility requirements will be available on the Victorian Business website shortly (click here).
This program will open for applications on Wednesday 2 June 2021 and will remain open for applications for three weeks.
