Small businesses at Dubbo in industries highly impacted by COVID-19 have more time to submit applications for up to $10,000 in Small Business Support Fund grants to help pay for unavoidable expenses.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said by extending the closing date to the end of June eligible small business owners now had more time to submit their applications to access the vital support measure.
"The grants were designed to help highly-impacted small businesses hibernate, with the criteria recently extended to provide support for eligible microbreweries, cellar doors and events and commercial vessel businesses," Mr Perrottet said.
"Already more than 40,000 small businesses have applied for the grants, worth more than $400 million, and we're looking forward to seeing this number grow over the next month and getting more support into the hands of those businesses who need it most.
"With the grants set to close at the end of June, we're now turning our attention from response to recovery and are looking at how we best support our businesses to reopen and welcome more customers."
The criteria for the Small Business Support Fund grants and online application form is available here.
Applications must be received by 11.59pm June 30.
