16 July 2021 Top-Up Payment

What is the 16 July 2021 Top-Up Payment?

The 16 July 2021 Top-Up Payment is a program that provides additional support to eligible small to medium businesses in sectors affected by the current restrictions in metropolitan and regional Victoria.

Successful recipients of the Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two and successful recipients of the Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021 will receive  additional payments. These payments will be processed automatically in July 2021.

 

Background

The Top-Up Payment will be processed after your initial application has been assessed as successful. It will be paid automatically into the same bank account nominated in your original application.

If you are eligible for either the Tourism Supplement or Top-Up Payment announced in June 2021, these will also be processed and paid automatically. Please note these each have unique eligibility criteria and may be processed at a later date than the 16 July 2021 Top-Up Payment.

 

Funding

Successful Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two applicants will receive an additional $2000, bringing the total grant to either $4500, $7000 or $9000, depending on their initial grant and additional supplements and payments.

Successful Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021 recipients will receive an additional $3000, bringing the total grant to either $6500 or $10,000, depending on their initial grant and any additional payments.

Grants and top-up payments may be made separately. All top-up payments will be processed from mid-July 2021.

 

Eligibility

You are eligible if you have successfully received a grant from the Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two or the Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021.

You do not need to apply for the Top-Up Payment or take any further action. If you have received a Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two grant or Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021 grant, the Top-Up Payment will be processed automatically and paid from July 2021.

Victorian businesses in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria are eligible if they have successfully received a grant from the Business Costs Assistance Program Round Two or the Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund 2021.

The Tourism Supplement and the June 2021 Top-Up Payment (for greater Melbourne businesses affected by a third week of lockdown in June) each have unique eligibility criteria and may be processed later than the 16 July 2021 Top-Up Payment.

If you are eligible for the Tourism Supplement or Top-Up Payment, these will also be processed and paid automatically from July 2021.
