The Small Business Ventilation Program is now open. The Victorian Government is providing $60 million for public-facing small businesses to improve ventilation.
This support has been designed to help businesses implement new guidance on building ventilation to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and to keep customers COVIDSafe. The Small Business Ventilation Guide is also available, which provides simple tips to help businesses improve ventilation.
Eligible businesses can now apply for funding to invest in equipment, undertake works or engage professional services to improve ventilation in areas of the workplace that are accessible to customers.
Under the program, 2 types of support are available:
- Ventilation Rebate
- Ventilation Grant
Applications are open until 11:59pm Friday 14th June 2022, or until funds are exhausted.
This program is a part of a broader Business Stimulus Package. To learn about other support you could access, visit the Business Stimulus Package.
