Eligible hospitality businesses will be able to seek a rebate of up to $5000 through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries for eligible purchases that relate to alfresco dining establishment, expansion or improvement that have been purchased from 1 March 2022 to 31 May 2022.
