COVID Relief Packages
The Federal Government recognises the important work of not-for-profit entities in providing support to the greater Australian community. As part of the second stimulus package, economic support is available for Australia’s charities and not-for-profit sector.
Any charity or even any business which can establish that its revenue has fallen by more than 30% when compared to the month ending 31 March 2019 is eligible during the present New South Wales COVID lockdown to apply for $7,500 grant.
Employees who have lost 20 work hours or more for that particular week are eligible for payments of $750 a fortnight.
Employees who may also be receiving other benefits (for example, Jobseeker) are also eligible to bridge the difference.
The COVID restrictions will carry on for some period so we await ultimate developments.
