Victorian Government Small Business COVID-19 Hardship Fund

Updated 6 September 2021

The Victorian Government Small Business COVID-19 Hardship Fund is designed to assist small to medium businesses whose operations have been severely impacted by COVID restrictions from May 27, 2021 and:

  • have so far been ineligible for other key Victorian Government business grant programs announced since 27 May 2021
  • have experienced at least a 70 percent reduction in turnover as a direct result of the COVID-19 restrictions

The program offers grants of $20,000 to eligible small and medium businesses, including employing and non-employing businesses. This program will allow more businesses who have previously not received support, to receive financial relief now.

Applications are open from Thursday 12 August 2021 until program funds are exhausted or 11:59 pm on Friday 10 September 2021, whichever is earlier.
