Stuart Ayres MP Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney welcomes the announcement that small businesses that have been highly impacted by COVID-19 have more time to submit applications for up to $10,000 in Small Business Support Fund grants.

Stuart Ayres said the grants were designed to help small businesses pay for unavoidable expenses including utilities, rates and supplier costs.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we really rely on them to create local jobs in local communities,” Stuart Ayres said.

“Applications for the Small Business Support Fund grants have now been extended until the end of June, meaning employing small businesses that perhaps haven’t had a chance to apply, still have time.”

“This is all about keeping people in jobs and businesses in business as we turn our attention from Response to Recovery.”

Minister Small Business Damien Tudehope said the grants were part of the NSW Government’s response strategy aimed at supporting small businesses.

“Already more than 40,000 small businesses have applied for the grants, worth more than $400 million, and we’re looking forward to seeing this number grow over the next month and getting more support into the hands of those businesses who need it most.”

“The criteria was also recently extended to provide support for eligible microbreweries, cellar doors and events businesses, meaning even more businesses are able to access the support measure.”

“With the grants now set to close at the end of June, we’re looking at how we best support our businesses to reopen and welcome more guests and become more resilient to any future challenges.”

The criteria for the Small Business Support Fund grants and online application form is available here. Applications must be received by 11.59pm 30 June.
