‘Government bureaucracy’ prohibiting recovery for small businesses

Small businesses in NSW will be eligible for up to $3000 in funding from July 1 under the state government’s Small Business Recovery Grant.

“As the JobKeeper program runs out in September, we’ve got to make sure we get as many people who are on that program into paid work.”
