Small business lockdown assistance grants now open in WA

The Western Australian Government has announced targeted grants to assist small businesses affected by the recent Perth and Peel lockdown.

The Small Business Lockdown Assistance Grants program will provide assistance of $2,000 to small businesses in the Perth and Peel region in industry sectors most severely impacted by the recent three-day lockdown and subsequent restrictions.

The grants are intended to offset some of the direct costs of the lockdown and business closure, such as loss of perishable goods or cancellations.

Who is eligible?

The Small Business Lockdown Assistance Grants program will provide support to an estimated 15,000 small businesses to cover direct costs and lost bookings due to cancellations.
