Small Business Recovery Package
The Queensland Government has committed $4 million for a Small Business Recovery Package as part of the Operation Queensland Recovery: State Recovery Plan 2017-19 to assist impacted small businesses recover from recent natural disasters. The package includes $1.5 million for small business grants, $2 million for the ongoing Go Local campaign and $550,000 for dedicated workshops and mentoring services, including counselling support.
The package is designed to help small business owners and operators impacted by Tropical Cyclone Debbie get back on their feet faster by supporting the development of new business plans, access to advice and support services and the exploration of new opportunities to improve business resilience.
Unmatched grants of up to $10,000 will soon be made available for eligible disaster-affected small businesses. The Small Business Recovery Package complements the immediate clean-up and reinstatement activities being undertaken with the support of activated joint Commonwealth-State Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) relief measures, including Category C grants for small business.
Details on how to apply for the grants and how to sign up for workshops and mentoring services will be released soon.
