Business Continuity Fund

A $156 million Business Continuity Fund will be established to deliver $5,000 grants to around 30,000 businesses impacted by capacity limits placed on businesses by necessary public health restrictions.

Twenty-four eligible sectors are covered by the fund for businesses including gyms, cafes, restaurants, event businesses, catering services and hairdressers.

Recognising businesses located in the CBD will continue to be impacted due to restrictions on the number of staff allowed in office buildings, they will be eligible to receive an additional $2,000.

To receive this business continuity funding, businesses must have received or be eligible for the Business Cost Assistance Program Round Two.
