The NSW Government has today announced a Small Business Support Grant of $10,000 will be available to eligible NSW small businesses that have had their operations highly impacted by the Public Health Orders issued in March.

Eligible businesses will include cafes, restaurants, gyms, retail, accommodation, and real estate services, recreation, and other industries that have been affected by the recent COVID-19 shutdowns.
