SA announces $1bn support package


The South Australian government has announced it will be providing $1 billion to support households and businesses across the state.

Premier Steven Marshall said the state government was “stepping up” to help residents.

“Today, we are adding $650 million to the first support package of $350 million that I announced just two weeks ago,” he said.

“I said then that we would take further strong action in response to the continuing impacts of the coronavirus. We want as many businesses as possible to be able to continue operating during these unprecedented times so that people can go about and keep their jobs.

“We want to relieve as much stress as possible for individuals and families.

“We want to keep the South Australian community and economy functioning so that, when this virus is beaten – it will be – we can bounce back as quickly as possible.”

Some of the key elements of the package include relief from taxes for businesses, a community and jobs support fund and additional support for recipients on jobseeker payments.
