Central Coast small businesses that are impacted by COVID-19 now have more time to apply for the NSW Government’s highly popular $10,000 small business grants.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the 1 June cut-off date has been extended to 30 June.


“On the Central Coast alone there have been 1,429 applications received from local business owners,” Mr Crouch said.


“This $10,000 grant is all about keeping people in jobs and businesses in business as we pivot from a health response to economic recovery.


“It can be used to cover bills like utilities, council rates, telecommunications bills, insurance payments, wages and more.”


Member of the Legislative Council Taylor Martin said the NSW Government was making $10,000 grants available to more businesses.


“The criteria for funding has been extended to include microbreweries, cellar doors and events and commercial vessel businesses,” Mr Martin said.


“This means there are dozens more local businesses on the Central Coast who can apply now for $10,000 from the NSW Government.


“This is part of the biggest small business support package in NSW history, with a total of $9.4 billion in financial support available to businesses from the NSW Government.”
