Circuit Breaker Business Support Package - Victoria
The Circuit Breaker Business Support Package is financial compensation available for eligible small to medium businesses and sole traders impacted by the recent Victorian lockdown.
The Victorian government has created this package to help those businesses who could no longer trade due to the latest health restrictions. It includes three key programs.
1) Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two
This program is offering $2,500 and $5,000 grants for eligible businesses in the most affected industries. It’s available to businesses that have incurred direct expenses due to the latest COVID-19 restrictions (and that cannot predominantly work from home).
You can apply for the Business Costs Assistance Program Round 2 here.
2) Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund
This program will provide a $3,500 or $7,000 grant (per premises) to businesses that hold an eligible food certificate and liquor license. It’s aimed at supporting venues in the hospitality sector.

3) Victorian Events Support Package
The Victorian Events Support Package is aimed at the events industry and will support operators that have experienced losses due to the restrictions. Full details of the package and application details are yet to be announced, but $20 million in funding has been made available.
