Business Support Vouchers now available
Latrobe City Council is working with businesses to help ease the immense challenges businesses are facing during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Council adopted a $1.7M Business and Community Support and Recovery Package in June this year in response to COVID-19 shutdowns.
Small businesses that have been impacted significantly by COVID-19 can apply for the Latrobe City Business Support Voucher Program.
The vouchers can be used by businesses to access services, advice, or expertise provided by a local service provider. Such services could be financial, legal, media and digital, marketing and communication, business coaching, human resources, and mental health and wellbeing.
The vouchers aim to support existing businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19 by helping business-people to:
- Develop a better understanding and key networks of local professional service available to businesses in Latrobe City
- Think strategically and for key personnel to work on the business, not just in the business.
To be eligible for the ‘Business Support’ voucher, applicants must have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and be based within the municipality of Latrobe City.
Businesses can apply online via SmartyGrants: Latrobe City Small Business Support Voucher program
