Resurgence Support Payment'
The Resurgence Support Payment (RSP) is a payment to help support viable and ongoing business or organisations due to a COVID-19 alert level increase to level 2 or higher. If your business or organisation is facing a reduction in revenue due to an alert level increase, you may be eligible for the RSP.
When the RSP is activated, eligible businesses and organisations can apply to receive the lesser of:
$1,500 plus $400 per full-time equivalent (FTE) employee, up to a maximum of 50 FTEs
four times (4x) the actual revenue decline experienced by the applicant.
Applications for the alert level escalation on 15 February 2021 have now closed.
Applications are open to businesses and organisations affected by the alert level escalation of 28 February 2021. The last day for applications is Monday 12 April 2021. Applicants must demonstrate that their 30% decline in revenue is for this alert level period.
if you feel your business has been effected and may be eligible, feel free to get in contact with us and we can help with the process!
