If you’re a a business having trouble paying for utilities or online connection during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for financial support.

In Tasmania, the COVID-19 Small Business Energy Support Program aims to assist Tasmanian small businesses impacted by COVID-19 with their electricity, water and sewage costs. Specifically, this program will support eligible embedded network customers, and those eligible customers that did not receive the COVID-19 electricity, water and/or sewerage waver.

Embedded network customers are those that get their power from a landlord or building owner like shops in a shopping centre, tenants in managed office accommodation or leaseholders at a business estate. More information is available here. Applications for the one-off $1,000 grants close on 26 October 2020.
