To help businesses through this difficult time we have detailed below some of the support available. This will continue to be updated as new support programs are announced.
Queensland Business Support Grants
A $5,000 grant will be available to small and medium businesses across Queensland affected by the COVID-19 lockdown that commenced on Saturday 31 July 2021 and lockdowns in other states. All eligible businesses who apply for a grant during the 3 month application period will receive funding.
Applications for this grant will open in mid-August. To qualify for the grant, businesses will need to meet the following criteria:
- you must have experienced at least a 30% reduction in turnover as a result of the lockdown.
- you have a turnover of more than $75,000 per annum.
- you have an annual payroll in Queensland of up to $10 million.
This is a lump-sum payment for people who lost work and income due to a Queensland COVID-19 public health order. The type of payment available to you depends on if you receive an eligible Centrelink payment or not. More information is available at the link below:
