New Victorian Business Support Package

A new jointly funded package from the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments will give Victorian small and medium businesses the extra support and confidence they need to recover from the recent lockdown.

The package will deliver an additional $400 million in support to thousands of businesses. This includes a $156 million Business Continuity Fund, a new $85 million Small Business COVID Hardship Fund and support for commercial tenants and landlords.

It will also build on Victorian Government support for licensed hospitality and alpine venues, with $70 million for the Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021 and $9.8 million for Alpine Business Support.
