Small and medium businesses in Townsville are being encouraged to see if they’re eligible for grants of up to $30,000.

Over $108 million is already in the pockets of more than 12,400 small businesses across Queensland, thanks to the Palaszczuk Government’s COVID-19 Business Support Grants.

The program, jointly funded by the Palaszczuk and Commonwealth Governments, provides grants to businesses impacted by Queensland lockdowns.

The Minister for Employment and Small Business, Di Farmer, said Townsville businesses should check to see if they were eligible.

“If your business saw at least a 30% reduction in turnover during the August Queensland lockdowns, even though Townsville wasn’t in lockdown itself, you could be eligible for a grant,” Minister Farmer said.
