Another small level of government assistance, this time from the NSW state government. Eligible small businesses, not-for-profits, and other business types that have fewer than 20 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) staff as at 1 March 2020 can apply for recovery grants of $500 to $3000.
This grant helps small businesses get back to business by meeting the costs of safely reopening or upscaling operations, for example:
- making fit-out changes
- providing staff training and counselling
- covering advertising and communications expenses
- purchasing cleaning products or services.
This grant can only be used for purchases of eligible expenses made from 1 July 2020, where no other government support is available.
It is minor in the scheme of things but every bit helps!
Check eligibility and apply online at Service NSW by Monday, 31 August 2020.
