Three categories of grants

  1. Businesses with a revenue decline of 70% across a minimum two-week period, starting from June 26, will receive $10,000. 

  2. Businesses with a revenue decline of 50% across a minimum two-week period, starting from June 26, will receive $7,000.
  •  Businesses with a 30% revenue decline, across a minimum two-week period, starting from June 26 will receive $5,000.

Stream 2

  • Hospitality and tourism businesses with an annual turnover above $75,000, but below $10 million.
