2021 COVID-19 Support Package
The 2021 COVID-19 Support Package will help tens of thousands of small businesses and people across NSW impacted by the current COVID-19 restrictions.
The package is designed to support businesses and keep people in jobs during the restrictions, which commenced in June 2021.
New $1500 small business fees and charges rebate
If you are a sole trader, the owner of a small business or a not-for-profit organisation in NSW, you may be eligible for a small business fees and charges rebate of $1500.
This rebate helps businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and encourages growth by reducing the cost of running a business.
Eligible businesses or not-for-profits only need to apply for the rebate once, but can submit multiple claims until the full value of $1500 is reached.
Funds can be used to offset the costs of eligible NSW and local government fees and charges.
The rebate will be available until 30 June 2022.
Online applications for the small business fees and charges rebate are currently open.

Grants are available to fund projects that reduce mental health stigma, and support employees to stay at work while they recover or to return to work sooner if they’ve needed time off.
