The Victorian Government has announced the $14.5 million COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Voucher Program to provide more than 7,000 Victorian businesses,
community organisations, not-for-profits and trader associations with $2,000 grants when they spend at least that amount to support initiatives such as outdoor hospitality and entertainment.
The vouchers will be valid for expenses including purchasing and hiring marquees, screens and umbrellas, obtaining insurance and promoting outdoor operations.
Hairdressers, beauty services, retail shops, dance studios and gyms will also be eligible to apply for vouchers, meaning they can join restaurants, cafes and bars in harnessing the opportunities of kerbside trading.

The Voucher Program will open soon and will be delivered by Business Victoria in partnership with Service Victoria.
