The Victorian Government has announced new cash grants for businesses impacted by the lockdown declared on 15 July 2021.

The cash grants will be paid automatically to businesses that successfully received a grant from the Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two or the Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021 (including regional businesses).

Top-up amount
Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund $3,000

You will not need to take any further action. The grant will automatically be paid. The payment will be processed from mid-July.

I did not apply for the original grants but would like to apply for the top-up?

Business Victoria has stated that more information is coming shortly on this question. The first step is to ensure that you were eligible for the original grants.
