Own a resort, AirBnB, or travel experience business? The last few months have been horrible for many, but particularly dreadful for the tourism industry. Government support has been helpful in some forms but the feedback we get is that it is often difficult to find. In this post we sourced and collected all the government grants we could to make it just that little bit easier, hopefully this can be of some assistance to businesses such as yours. This list may not be exhaustive of everything out there but it is a good start:
Our own support program:
As we have mentioned in a previous article, we extended our bushfire support program for Australian businesses affected by the bushfires of late 2019-early 2020 until the end of the year which includes free and discounted videography and photography services of which you are likely to be eligible. For more details please contact us through our form on our homepage: here
