COVID-19 Business Support

This section contains advice, updates and support to help your business plan and respond to coronavirus COVID-19.

Support for businesses

The Victorian Government has announced a package of automatic cash grants that will provide regional Victorian businesses with the support they need following the extension of the current lockdown to the whole state (21 August in regional Victoria until 11:59pm on 2 September).

Grants to be paid through the new $146.6 million initiative, jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments, will be made automatically without the need for regional businesses to make an application.

Deep cleaning for businesses

The Victorian Government is offering a Deep Clean Rebate for businesses who have to conduct a deep clean as a result of being identified as an exposure site. 

A rebate of up to 80 per cent of cleaning costs (capped at $10,000 per site) is available to eligible businesses where a person suspected or confirmed to have coronavirus (COVID-19) has been on the premises or worksite when they may have been infectious. The rebate will be given through a grant application process.
