This week, the Victorian Government announced a new $282.5 million support package for communities and businesses most affected by restrictions.

 

The additional funding means 90,000 Victorian businesses and sole traders will now share in up to $484.3 million in support for the 12 days of the current lockdown.

Businesses that had chosen not to apply for these support programs in relation to the May/June lockdown, or had been ineligible to apply but are now eligible, will be welcome to apply for July lockdown support payments and will be considered outside of the automatic top-up process.

Discussions with the Commonwealth Government have confirmed that the vast majority of micro-businesses not registered for GST will be eligible for the Covid-19 Disaster Payment of $600/$375 per seven-day period. The Victorian Government will establish a concierge service to help these businesses access this support.

 

Key components include:
