The Victorian Government has launched a $250 million Circuit Breaker Business Support Package to assist small to medium businesses and sole traders affected by the circuit breaker restrictions announced on 27 May 2021. Applications open June 2 and will run for three weeks,

The package will support businesses unable to operate due to these necessary public health measures, including targeted support for the events industry.
