In light of the extension of stay-at-home orders and the impact on businesses across
the Cootamundra electorate, Steph Cooke, Member for Cootamundra is hosting a
virtual Small Business COVID-19 Support Forum from 6-7pm, Wednesday 1
September 2021.


“I acknowledge some small businesses are doing it tough due to the current COVID19 lockdown and restrictions”, Ms Cooke said.


“I sought the support of the Minister for Finance and Small Business, Damien
Tudehope and the Small Business Commissioner, Chris Lamont who will be joining
this forum.”


The NSW Government has implemented several types of financial support to help
businesses across NSW as part of the COVID-19 support package, which Minister
Tudehope will outline through this forum.


The Small Business Commissioner will focus on the role and services available
through the NSW Small Business Commission; with representatives from Service
NSW available to answer questions.


Steph extends an invitation to all small businesses in the Cootamundra electorate to
attend the forum.
