Is your small regional business experiencing, or at risk of, financial hardship due to the impacts of drought or COVID‑19?
To help businesses with the challenges they are experiencing and get back on their feet, The Australian Government is investing more than $11.7 million in small business financial counselling:
- $7 million to help small businesses in drought-affected areas improve their long-term viability.
- $4.785 million to help small businesses recover from the economic impacts of COVID-19.
These initiatives will run until 30 June 2021, which will help you to:
- better understand your financial position
- identify options
- implement plans to improve the viability of your business
- access broader professional advice and support.
- Read the program guidelines.
These services are for small businesses that:
- have 19 employees or less
- are experiencing, or at risk of, financial hardship due to the impacts of drought or COVID-19
- are not located within 20 kilometres of a town with a population greater than 50,000
- are ineligible to access services under the existing Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) Program.
