Small Business or Not-for-profit organisations


If you’re a small business or a not-for-profit organisation in NSW and you’ve been directly impacted by storms and floods from 4 August 2022 or 14 September 2022 onwards, you may be eligible for a storm and flood disaster recovery small business grant.

This disaster recovery grant of up to $50,000 is to help pay for the costs of clean-up and reinstatement of a small business or not-for-profit organisation’s operations.

You must be a small business or a not-for-profit organisation in a defined disaster area (AGRN 1030 or 1034) to be eligible.

Covered costs could include, but are not limited to:

• payment for tradespeople to conduct safety inspections

• equipment and materials required for cleaning up

• equipment and materials essential for immediately resuming operations

• payment for a cleaner if the service would not have been needed, or exceeds ordinary cleaning costs, in the absence of the disaster

• the removal and disposal of debris, damaged materials or damaged stock

repairing premises and internal fittings

• leasing temporary premises within the defined disaster area, replacing or repair of motor vehicles registered for business use, or replacing lost or damaged stock, if it’s essential for resuming operations.
