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.
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.
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.
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).
