Small businesses, sole traders and not-for-profit groups on the Central Coast can now apply for one-off grants from the NSW Government, ranging between $7,500 and $15,000.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the one-off grants would help local businesses that have been forced to shut their doors or change their normal operations.

“I urge any local business with a turnover between $75,000 and $50 million, and with a wages bill below $10 million, to apply now,” Mr Crouch said.

“Businesses that have suffered a 30% decline in turnover can receive $7,500, businesses with a 50% decline can receive $10,500, and those with a 70% decline can receive $15,000.

“Service NSW staff have worked around the clock to open this grant up for applications as quickly as possible.

“Instead of taking weeks, Service NSW will assess and respond to applicants within days of the online application being received.”
