Local Lockdowns Business Support Program

Local Lockdowns Business Support Program – Victorian State Government

$5,000 grant to help businesses through temporary coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdowns.

As announced on Tuesday 30 June 2020, specific postcodes in Victoria will return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

  1. What support is available?

Businesses that are operating within a postcode affected by the return to Stage 3 restrictions are eligible for a one-off, $5,000 grant to help them get through to the other side of the local lockdown.

  1. What type of business can apply for this grant?

Businesses can apply if they:

  • are operating in a postcode that is affected by the return to Stage 3 restrictions (not necessarily their registered address); and
  • are an employing business; and
  • are currently registered to pay GST; and
  • have a payroll of less than $3 million per annum; and
  • hold an Australian Business Number (ABN) and have held that ABN at 16 March 2020 (date of the State of Emergency declaration); and
  • have been engaged in carrying out the operation of the business in Victoria on 16 March 2020.

Businesses can still receive this $5,000 grant even if they have already received a $10,000 Business Support Fund grant or payroll tax refund or waiver.

Full guidelines and information on eligibility to be released shortly.
