Lockdown support for Queenslanders: August 2021
Eleven Queensland local Government areas were declared a Commonwealth hotspot on 31 July 2021.
The Queensland Government has since announced a $5,000 Business Support Grant for those impacted across the State (applications open mid month). For eligible individuals, the COVID-19 Disaster payment is available - payment accessible from Services Australia on 7 August 2021.
This guide sets out what support is available to Queenslanders impacted by the lockdown - although full eligibility details of the business support, and details of how to evidence the 30% reduction in turnover, are not available as yet.
