“The October floods devastated our region, and these grants exist to provide businesses a helping hand. I encourage everyone impacted to make the most of this assistance,” she said.

“I’ve been speaking to businesses across the region and many were not even aware assistance was available.

“In order to be eligible for assistance of up to $50,000 you must have applied for the initial $5000 grant by February 7.”

People can call Business Victoria on 13 22 15 or the Flood Recovery Helpline on 1800 560 760 for assistance with grant applications.
