Support For School Camps and Music

share

Businesses impacted by school COVID safety measures in late 2021 now have access to a grant program to help them get back on track for 2022. The $14 million grant program will be available to businesses that schools were restricted from accessing in Term 4 of 2021.

Analysis shows these restrictions primarily impacted overnight camp providers and music education instructors and services.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman welcomed the grants, saying “I’m really pleased to see this Government step in and support the business that have been hit hard by COVID-19 over the past two years – especially ones that provide crucial educational experiences to our students

Eligible businesses and not for profit organisations will be able to apply for one-off payments equal to 40 per cent of their decline in Term 4 2021 turnover compared to previous years, up to $15,000.

Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said the grants would offer a much-needed lifeline for these businesses in the region to refocus on delivering quality programs for NSW school students.

“Camps and music programs give students incredible experiences that create lasting memories and can have a profound impact on their development. We need these businesses to continue to provide this to students,” Ms Mitchell said.

The grants will be available in February through the Service NSW app, with businesses expected to apply for grants in April through their Service NSW for Business profile.
