Small business month grant accepted
Local business owners are set for a boost with Council accepting $2,500 in funding through the NSW Government’s Small Business Month 2022 funding program recently.
Council will present a robust program of events and activities as part of Small Business Month in March this year, giving small businesses the opportunity to enhance their community profile, nurture and build relationships with their peers and potential customers, and acquire new skills and ideas to strengthen their business position.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli said the funding would assist Council to offer a specific course to assist businesses using social media for the first time.
“Businesses have been affected in a range of ways over the last two years and it will be fantastic to offer our local small businesses a chance to learn about how they can grow,” Cr Fedeli said.
“The grant funding will go towards a two-part workshop series on an Introduction to Social Media for businesses, providing practical skills to enable businesses to use social media to promote their businesses.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government for their support of businesses in Camden and look forward to hearing from our local businesses once they take part in the program.”
Camden Local MP, Peter Sidgreaves said the program offered small businesses many great opportunities.
“The small business sector has done it tough during the COVID-19 pandemic so it’s great to see events being hosted to help small businesses bounce back and build a stringer future,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
Council’s full Small Business Month program will be announced in the coming weeks.
