Applications for the Back to Work grants are now open for those businesses significantly affected by the Auckland Anniversary weekend flooding.
The Back to Work grants focus on supporting businesses at high risk of closure or who have experienced a significant impact on their operations and are part of the Government’s $5 million package of emergency support.
Designed to help Auckland’s small businesses get back on their feet sooner, the grants are not a substitute for insurance or compensation for all commercial losses a business has suffered from the recent flooding.
The Back to Work grants categories are:
Up to $5000 for businesses that are red stickered, yellow stickered or not currently operating as a result of the flooding
Up to $2000 for businesses that are operating and have suffered a loss in excess of $2000 as a result of the flooding
$750 for businesses that are operating and have suffered a loss in excess of $750, but less than $2000 as a result of the flooding
To apply, businesses must:
Have no less than one employee, and no more than 20
Have been directly impacted, including but not limited to, having sustained damage to property/stock and have been unable to trade during normal trading hours
Face significant cashflow issues due to continued challenges with customer access, ability to source stock, or operate as usual due to physical damage to equipment or premises, or delays in insurance assessment and repairs
Be an otherwise viable business both before and after the flooding, and
Commit to acting in line with employment law and with due regard to their employees.
