Support for businesses in lockdown

Support is available to help businesses in Hume City get through lockdowns and plan for a successful future.

Government support

The Victorian Government announced on Wednesday 21 July that there would be an additional $282.5 million to support businesses across Victoria. Businesses that had chosen not to apply for these support programs in relation to the May/June lockdown, or had been ineligible to apply but are now eligible, will be welcome to apply for July lockdown support payments.

The Australian Government is also providing COVID-19 disaster payments to eligible people who have been unable to earn income due to lockdowns.
