NIBA's weekly e-newsletter, Broker Buzz, is packed with the latest industry and product news, regulatory updates, forthcoming events and seminars.
Flood-affected businesses can now assess their entitlement to financial assistance through a five-step eligibility checker recently launched by Service NSW.
The online tool will require business owners to answer a series of five multiple choice questions. Once completed, the checker will list all flood grants that business owners can apply for.
Members can share this online tool with flood-affected clients who have not yet applied for a flood grant and are unclear about which grants they are eligible for.
Flood grants currently available in NSW:
The Small Business Northern Flood Grant went live in early May, and applications for the Medium Business Grants opened on 13 May 2022.
Business owners can only apply for one flood grant at a time, so it is important to remind clients to consider all available grants and apply for the best option first.
To access the eligibility checker, visit Service NSW.
