Cash Grants for SA Small Business and Individual Support Payments

21Jul Cash Grants for SA Small Business and Individual Support Payments

The State Government has held a press conference today announcing that they will fund payments to individuals outside of the Federal Government Hot Spots – which means all South Australians impacted by the 7 day lockdown will have access to the government grants.

The Federal Government will continue to fund eligible individuals in declared hotspots.

Mr Lucas also announced today the State Government will fund eligible businesses the $3,000 emergency cash grant (or $1,000 for non employing businesses).
