COVID-19 support packages

It is a challenging time for our business community given the current public health situation. Below is a host of links to resources and COVID-19 financial support to help your business through this challenging period.

The Council has established a Small Business Task Force (SBTF) to work in collaboration with Business SA. It provides consistent and up to date information to city businesses on support packages and other services available from federal, state and local government, peak bodies and industry associations. The team will be in regular contact with our Precincts and city businesses and would like to hear from small business to understand how we can help.
