The City of Melbourne Council has announced that small business grants of up to $5,000 for Victorians doing it tough.
The pandemic has left many businesses all around the world struggling to survive. In particular, as a result of the second wave and its corresponding lockdown, small businesses in Victoria are continuing to feel the financial pressure that weighs so heavily on their shoulders.
Before the crisis, small businesses accounted for nearly half of all private-sector jobs which directly contributed to the economic health of a locality – rich in businesses that spanned a variety of sectors, namely retail, architecture, professional services, cafes, building and construction. In order to jump-start the economy, the Victorian government is offering various grants, vouchers and assistance programs, as a step to ensuring businesses are able to get through the current climate.
Business transformation grants packages of up to $5,000 are now available for small businesses located in CBD, Docklands, World Trade Centre and Southbank. These grants are focused on “brick and mortar” businesses that have been impacted by decreased foot traffic. Grants are open to all sectors, excluding hospitality.
Grant applications are now open with a deadline of Thursday (3rd September 2020) at 11:59 PM.
