Tesch urges businesses to apply for new payments

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is urging local businesses affected by the lockdown to apply for payments for which applications open today, Monday, July 26.

"The NSW Government's lockdown on construction across the Central Coast is hitting our local tradies hard," said Ms Tesch.

"Small businesses across our community are getting hit too.

"I am urging anyone who is currently impacted to apply for the Service NSW financial support payments, two in particular which open for applications on July 26."

She said the Covid Disaster Payment from Service NSW was a one-off payment to help businesses, sole traders or not-for-profit organisations impacted by the current Greater Sydney Covid-19 restrictions.

"Grants between $7500 and $15,000 are available to eligible businesses depending on the decline in turnover experienced during the restrictions."

Micro-business Covid-19 Support Grants also open today, July 26, with Service NSW.

Ms Tesch said this was a fortnightly payment for businesses with a turnover between $30,000 and $75,000.

Applications also open today with Services Australia for Jobsaver payments.

Ms Tesch said these were fortnightly payments to help maintain employee headcount as at 13 July and to provide cashflow support to businesses.

Ms Tesch said: "These support payments aren't enough for the people who fall between the cracks and Labor is still calling on the Morrison Government to reinstate JobKeeper to support businesses.

"If you are a small business earning less than $35,000, I would like to hear from you."
