$100m Support Stimulus for VIC Sole Traders Announced
The Victorian Government has announced a $100 million support stimulus for sole traders, to aid in the recovery from COVID-19.
This aspect of the stimulus measures on offer for businesses, will target those likely to be negatively affected by Step 2 of the VIC governments plan to ease lockdown restrictions. It focusses on those who weren’t previously eligible for the Business Support Fund package.
There will be grants of $3,000 to support an estimated 33,000 sole traders across the state.
Business owners are expected to be from a range of industries such as accommodation, tourism, media and film production, gyms and more.
More information on the grants is expected to be released by the Victorian government soon.
