Small Business Ventilation Program extended

The Victorian Government is launching a new round of the $60 million Small Business Ventilation Program.


Eligible businesses can access between $500 and $5,000 for air ventilation and filtration equipment, works or professional services that will help improve air quality indoors.

Under the Small Business Ventilation Program, businesses can apply for two types of support:

  • Ventilation Rebate – a $500 rebate to take immediate actions such as purchasing an air purifier or hiring a qualified tradesperson to undertake minor services to improve ventilation.
  • Ventilation Grant – matched grants between $1,000 and $5,000 to invest in larger projects such as building works or engaging professional services or equipment to improve ventilation.

Applications will be assessed for eligibility on a first-come, first-served basis until 11:00pm Thursday 8 September 2022 or when funds are exhausted.

Improving ventilation helps reduce the spread of COVID-19 and gives customers confidence businesses are keeping them safe.

The latest round was announced as part of the Victorian Government’s recent guidance on masks and work from home arrangements, allowing business the flexibility to implement its own setting over winter.
