Victorian members, it is hoped that the restrictions in Melbourne will ease this week. Despite this, your business or yourself may be eligible for the Government Business Costs Assistance Program. The scheme is somewhat restrictive in who is available for assistance but there is currently $7000 available should you be able to meet the requirements. To help advocate for greater access to this scheme you can sign the petition that is available HERE.
You can also check out the Victorian Chamber of Commerce page to view further Victorian and National support schemes you may be able to access HERE.
I appreciate none of this is simple and we continue to advocate on your behalf at a public policy and government level.
I encourage you to reach out and support each other and please contact Lauren Egan or myself directly if we can be of help to you.
Hang in there!
