$5,000 Local Lockdown Business Support Grant

As announced on Tuesday 30 June 2020, specific postcodes in Victoria will return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions mean that businesses such as restaurants, cafes, pubs, gyms, indoor sporting venues, cinemas, live music, entertainment venues and other businesses can no longer operate as they would like.

Businesses that are operating within a postcode affected by the return to Stage 3 restrictions are eligible for a one-off, $5,000 grant to help them get through to the other side of the local lockdown.

This program closes 31 July 2020.

What support is available?

Businesses that are operating within a postcode affected by the return to Stage 3 restrictions are eligible for a one-off, $5,000 grant to help them get through to the other side of the local lockdown.

What type of business can apply?

Businesses can apply if they:

  • are operating in a postcode that is affected by the return to Stage 3 restrictions (not necessarily their registered address); and
  • are registered for JobKeeper and attest that their trading has been impacted by the return to Stage 3 restrictions; and
  • are an employing business; and
  • are currently registered to pay GST; and
  • have a payroll of less than $3 million per annum; and
  • hold an Australian Business Number (ABN) and held that ABN at 16 March 2020 (date of the State of Emergency declaration); and
  • have been engaged in carrying out the operation of the business in Victoria on 16 March 2020.

Businesses can still receive this $5,000 grant even if they have already received a $10,000 Business Support Fund grant or payroll tax refund or waiver.
