Latrobe City Council is encouraging businesses to apply for Council’s Business Support Voucher program to access local services, advice and expertise, all the while helping other local businesses.
The program assists businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19 by helping business-people to learn more about the professional services available in Latrobe City, build networks, and to enable key personnel to think strategically and work on the business, not just in the business.
“The vouchers present the ideal opportunity for business-people to gain access to ideas and information that will help their business through the COVID pandemic and be stronger as we start our economic recovery,” Latrobe City Council Chief Executive Officer Steven Piasente said.
“The vouchers can only be used at businesses within Latrobe City and in turn, this helps business-people to become more aware of the services available locally and to contribute financially to these service-providers, now and possibly post-COVID as well.”
The Business Support Vouchers can be used by businesses to access such local services as human resources services, financial services, media and digital services, marketing and communications, business coaching, legal services, and occupational health and safety.
The voucher program is part of the second phase of Latrobe City Council’s Business and Community Support and Recovery Package.
To be eligible for a voucher, applicants must have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and be based within the municipality of Latrobe City.
Applications are now being accepted until Friday 27 November and can be made online: https://www.latrobe.vic.gov.au/Home/Business/Support_for_Business/Local…
Applications will be assessed on an ongoing basis and applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application within five business days. Applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines carefully.
