COVID-19 Support for Businesses

With forced closures and changes due to COVID-19 over the past few years, there's never been a more challenging time for businesses in Wollongong.

The 'health' of our local businesses and economy affects everyone in our city: business owners, employees, customers and their families.

Wollongong City Council is working to support and promote local businesses. We’ve heard from our business community that you need not just financial help, but also support to adapt and promote your goods and services.

We're introducing a range of initiatives to help you rebuild, recover and re-energise your business. And our ongoing business services are continuing to help you over the long term.
