Small Business Ventilation Program (VIC): Everything you need to know

There is an exciting new intiative that has been released by Business Victoria which is offering up to $60M in rebates and grants for small businesses to help improve the ventilation in their premises.

What is it?

The $60 million Small Business Ventilation Program will help eligible public-facing small businesses to improve building ventilation in areas accessible to customers and reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

How does it work?

It is quite simple in design and there are two options for small business to choose from:

Option 1 - Ventilation Rebate

This is a simple $500 rebate for public-facing small businesses to undertake immediate actions such as purchasing equipment or hiring a qualified tradesperson to undertake minor services to improve ventilation in areas accessible to customers.

Option 2 - Ventilation Grant

This option involves a matched grant of $1000 to $5000 to enable public-facing small businesses who employ staff to invest in larger projects such as building works, engaging professional services or equipment to improve ventilation in areas accessible to customers.

Where to start

For most small business owners it may seem a little confusing to understand how to take advantage of this initiative.

If you would like to start with a conversation with one of our qualified team, QED can provide professional advice on how to improve the ventilation in your premises and/or provide continuous monitoring solutions on a temporary or permanent basis. Our fee is eligible for the Ventilation Grant (VIC only).

You can contact us online here, or give us a call on 1300 400 733.

 

*PLEASE NOTE APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON 24TH JUNE 2022*
