Thousands of small businesses reopening across the State 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 to help businesses safely relaunch their operations with funds remaining from the $750 million Small Business Support Fund.
Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said the new grants signalled a move from survival to revival.
“Applying for this new grant will be simple and easy, so businesses can focus on reopening safely and welcoming back customers,” Mr Dominello said.
The $10,000 Small Business Support Grant closes on 30 June - more than 49,700 businesses have applied for the grants.
Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope said the new grants would help businesses turn their lights on, open their doors and welcome back customers and clients.
“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,” Mr Tudehope said.
“Small business owners can also get advice from Business Connect advisors to help them innovate, pivot or take advantage of opportunities in the market.
More information will be made available on the Service NSW website closer to the launch.
