On Friday 22nd October 2021, the New Zealand Government announced a support package for Auckland businesses affected by alert level restrictions as the country transitions to the new COVID-19 Protection Framework.

Up to $7,000 can be granted to your business for these services and Kudo can help you through the application process. Applications open on Wednesday 1st December.

How much funding can I get?

Up to a total of $7,000 can be applied to assist your business online. The programme is divided into two areas:

Business Advice

The Business Advice Grant allows businesses to receive advice and support to plan out what their business needs and create a strategy around that. This part of the programme allows businesses to apply for up to $3000 in services. This includes access to expert advice and strategy such as; Google Ads Planning, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), and Website Growth Opportunities.


The Implementation Grant recognises that some businesses already have a plan and just need help in doing the work. In this case, this part of the programme allows businesses to apply for up to $4,000 in implementation services that includes; Google Ads Setup & Management, and Website Development. 


How do I apply for funding?

The process is quick and easy to get setup and can be done online.
