Grants of up to $100,000 will be given to Territory not-for-profit and community organisations to engage local businesses to do repairs, renovations and upgrades to their property and facilities (permanent physical improvements to land and/or buildings). Solar power installation projects are not eligible. The first $50,000 will be paid as a grant with no co-contribution required. The Northern Territory (NT) Government will also match any renovation costs that exceed $50,000 on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a maximum of $100,000 total. Each organisation can apply once to the program and will be able to complete up to three jobs under the one application. Eligibility Only not-for-profit and community organisations operating in the NT in either owned or leased premises can apply. Schools and local government bodies are not eligible to apply. All works must be completed by a local business. This means they must be a Territory enterprise, which: is a legal entity and holds a valid Australian Business Number (ABN) as of the date the program is open, and is operating in the NT in either owned or leased premises, and has a significant permanent presence in the NT, and employs NT residents (this can be you if you are a sole trader).
As part of the Northern Territory government's plan to rescue jobs and help businesses recover, there is a $50 million Small Business Survival Fund that will hand out cash payment to eligible businesses. The grant starts from $2,000 and up to $50,000 for businesses that have been severely impacted by the social distancing and shutdown rules. The fund's objective is to financially assist NT businesses to make it through the pandemic, improve or start online, delivery and takeway services and upgrade skillsets and premises.
