COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Voucher Program

A $14.5 million COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Voucher Program will provide more than 7,000 Victorian businesses, community organisations, not-for-profits and trader associations with grants of $2,000 will be available to businesses from 26 October 2021 to support initiatives such as outdoor hospitality and entertainment as part of the State Government’s COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Voucher Program.
The vouchers will be valid for expenses including purchasing and hiring marquees, screens and umbrellas, obtaining insurance and promoting outdoor operations.
Hairdressers, beauty services, retail shops, dance studios and gyms will also be eligible to apply for vouchers, meaning they can join restaurants, cafes and bars in harnessing the opportunities of kerbside trading.
