ACT Government increases support to lockdown impacted Newsagents

Whilst Newsagents are designated as essential providers and businesses in the essential retail grouping determined by the ACT Government and have been able to trade during the lockdown which has been extended to 15 October, there may be circumstances under which Newsagents are eligible for financial support. The ACT Government’s COVID-19 Business Support Grants deliver $20,000 for qualifying businesses. A COVID-19 Small Business Hardship Scheme with payments up to $10,000 will also open for applications in October.
