Business Support Fund Assistance

The Victorian Government has launched the $500 million Business Support Fund to help small businesses survive the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and keep people in work.

The Fund is part of the Victorian Government’s $1.7 billion Economic Survival Package.

Small businesses are eligible if they:

  • Employ staff
  • Have been subject to closure or are highly impacted by Victoria’s shutdown
  • Have a turnover of more than $75,000
  • Have payroll of less than $650,000
