Small businesses in Mackay are being encouraged to see if they’re eligible for grants of up to $30,000.

More than $108 million is already in the pockets of over 12,400 small businesses across Queensland, thanks to the Palaszczuk Government’s COVID-19 Business Support Grants.

The program, jointly funded by the Palaszczuk and Commonwealth Governments, provides grants to businesses impacted by Queensland lockdowns.

Minister for Employment and Small Business, Di Farmer, said Mackay and Whitsunday businesses should check to see if they were eligible.

“If your business saw at least a 30% reduction in turnover during the recent Queensland lockdowns, even though places like Mackay weren’t locked down, you could be eligible for a grant,” Minister Farmer said.
