Due to the extension of South East Queensland’s hard lockdown this month, State Treasurer Cameron Dick has announced at today’s press conference a $260 million package to support Queensland businesses, particularly small and medium sized enterprises.
Your business may be eligible for financial support through the 2021 COVID-19 Business Support Grants. $5,000 grants will be made 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.
You may be eligible to receive a grant of $5,000 (excluding GST). This grant may be used for business expenses.
Your business doesn’t have to be located in South East Queensland, but you must have experienced at least a 30% reduction in turnover as a result of the lockdown.
Grants are also available for large businesses in the hospitality and tourism sector operating in the 11 local government areas in the lockdown, subject to meeting eligibility criteria.
More information on how to apply, including the opening date for applications, will be available in the coming days.
