COVID-19 Business Grant

To make an application you will be required to provide your ANZSIC code number

Most NSW Wine businesses tend to have one of the 3 following ANZSIC codes:

  • 01310 Grape Growing
  • 12140 Wine and Other Alcoholic Beverage Manufacturing
  • 43109 Wine club - retailing wine off licensed premises (in the 'List of highly impacted industries')

All affected businesses are eligible to apply for this grant, but your ANZSIC code will determine how your grant will be treated:

If your ANZSIC code puts you in the 'List of highly impacted industries', you will have a slightly different process to those ANZSIC codes that are outside the list of highly impacted industries, but you are still eligible for the grant.
