Applications for the Small Business Recovery Grant from the NSW government had been extended until midnight Monday, 31 August.
The grant can be used to cover eligible expenses incurred from 1 July 2020 where no other government support is available.
“Small businesses are doing a great job adapting to the new health and safety requirements and we know these grants are helping to cover some of these costs,” said Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the grant had built upon the previous Small Business Support Grant of up to $10,000.
“Both grants are funded through the $750 million Small Business Support Fund, which forms part of the NSW government’s almost $16 billion health and economic response measures,” Mr Perrottet said.
“These grants have played a vital role in keeping people in jobs and businesses in business as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
In April, the NSW government put $750 million into the Small Business Support Fund as part of measures to keep small businesses afloat.
The original program remained open until 1 June and was specifically catered for businesses with up to 19 employees to help them meet unavoidable business costs such as utilities, overheads, legal costs and financial advice.
Eligible small businesses can apply for the grant here.
