Grants of $2,500 for local councils and $3,500 for chambers of commerce, industry associations and not-for-profit groups are available to help them organise events for the fifth NSW Small Business Month in March 2022.

Organisations can also support small businesses as a collaboration partner.

Small Business Month is a unique opportunity to help the State’s hardworking small business owners by offering events that teach them new skills, inspire them with new ideas and connect them with their fellow entrepreneurs.

The theme of this Small Business Month is `Rebuild, Recharge, Renew’, which reflects the NSW Government’s determination to help small businesses recover from recent challenges and build a brighter, stronger future.

Applications for event grants open on 1 November, and must be submitted by 10 December with organisations encouraged to get online, review the grant guidelines and start preparing applications now.

The events must adhere to the relevant NSW Health advice, including having a COVID-safety plan, registration of all attendees, limiting the number of people in the venue, requiring attendees to remain seated and hand sanitiser at all events.
