The Tweed’s smaller employers and charities impacted by coronavirus should apply for the NSW Nationals in Government’s brand new Small Business Recovery Grants, according to Tweed Nationals MP Geoff Provest.

“We had the $10,000 grants which helped hundreds of Tweed businesses and not-for- profit organisations stay afloat and from 1 July applications for the new $3000 grants will open to further help them get back on the path to success,” Mr Provest said

“This cash can be used to help with running costs such as marketing and phone bills, any fit-out changes and extra staff training to create a COVIDSafe environment.”

The key eligibility criteria are that the organisation must have at least one employee, be below the $900,000 payroll tax threshold and have suffered financially because of the coronavirus.

Applications are open from 1 July to 15 August 2020. For more information, including checking eligibility and lodging an application, please visit
