We want to provide support for local organisations and community groups, and help property owners conserve our heritage, through many exciting grants and funding opportunities.

If you or your organisation has a project that deserves to be funded, see if we can find a grant with your name on it. See below for details. 

NSW Government COVID-19 Support Grant

Service NSW has confirmed that online applications for the NSW Government Northern Beaches small business hardship grants will open up from late April 2021.

The one-off $3,000 or $5,000 cash grants aim to help businesses rebuild and recover from the December/January COVID-19 lockdowns. They are designed to cover unavoidable costs for which no other government backing is available such as utilities, rent, financial or legal advice and other activities to support the operation of a business.

Now is the time to start preparing all your documents ahead of applications opening.  For more information on eligibility and documentation required to apply, visit Service NSW Northern Beaches small business hardship grants.

In addition, from April the NSW Government is offering rebates of up to $1,500 for small businesses to offset costs for eligible fees and charges including Council rates.  To find out more about these rebates visit Service NSW small business fees and charges rebate.

Please feel free to contact the Business Support Service for any further enquiries.
