Small Business Bushfire Support Grant NSW


The Small Business Bushfire Support Grant provides small businesses, including primary producers with funding to help them recover from the bushfires and rebuild resilient businesses.

Open
Close date: 15 Dec 2020 12:00 AM AEDT.

What do you get?

Funding of up to $10,000.

Who is this for?

Bushfire affected small businesses and primary producers located in the eligible local government areas.

Overview

 Eligible costs may include, but are not limited to:

  • meeting standing business costs, including utilities, salaries and rent
  • seeking financial advice to support the recovery of the business
  • adjusting the business to be viable in the changed local context following the bushfires
  • developing the business and extending business reach through marketing and communications activities
  • improvements to make the business more resilient to future disasters

A decline in revenue as a result of the bushfires may have occurred from:

  • an evacuation or tourism leave order
  • other supply chain interruptions or stock damage resulting in reduced sales, such as road closures and utility disconnections
  • significantly reduced customer numbers, such as through consumer perception of danger and smoke haze

What are the eligibility criteria?

To be eligible, you must:

  • be a small business owner
  • hold an Australian business number (ABN) and have held that ABN at the time of the eligible disaster
  • have been engaged in carrying on the small business in a defined disaster area when affected by the eligible disaster
  • have suffered a decline in revenue of 40% or more in a relevant 3 month period (compared to a relevant 3 month period in the previous year) as a result of the eligible disaster in the defined disaster area
