The 2022 Small Business Support Program

Date: 23 February 2022

The 2022 Small Business Support Program is designed to help businesses survive the immediate impact of the Omicron COVID-19 strain. It is for the month of February 2022 only.

Eligible employing businesses and not-for-profit organisations will receive 20% of their weekly payroll as a lump sum for the month of February 2022, with a minimum payment of $750 per week and a maximum payment of $5,000 per week.

Non-employing businesses will receive $500 per week, paid as a lump sum of $2,000.

Businesses with a turnover of between $75,000 and $50 million that experienced a minimum 40% decline in turnover in January 2022, and in the first fortnight of February 2022, will be eligible to apply.
