COVID-19 Recovery Grants

The Barossa Council is pleased to be launching the $150,000 business and community grant program to provide support to assist in community and economic recovery within the Council area.

Business grants of $1000 to $3000 are being targeted at micro and small businesses within the tourism, hospitality, retail and creative industries sectors. Community grants of $500 to $3000 are available to not-for-profit organisations and community groups. The grants will provide funding of up to 66% of costs that have or will be incurred by eligible businesses or groups.

The grant monies may be used to cover a range of expenses including, but not limited to:

  • Setting up and buying materials to support COVID Safe Plans or the safe management of operating the business or community group;
  • Assist in matching funds for other grant applications made by the business;
  • Obtain necessary business advice, support or assistance to develop a new business plan;
  • Undertake and support any marketing and promotion activity;
  • Purchasing new inventory, materials or other consumables (for clubs/groups) to operate or commence fundraising activities.

Recognising the entrepreneurialism of the area’s groups and businesses, the grant committee will consider any ideas that support a business or group to be sustainable during the pandemic.
