The Resurgence Support Payment (RSP) will be open to applications from 8am on Tuesday 24 August and will be available until one month after a nationwide return to Alert Level 1. This payment will be available to any business or organisation in New Zealand that experiences at least a 30% drop in revenue or a 30% decline in capital-raising ability over a 7-day period, due to a COVID-19 alert level increase of level 2 or higher. The RSP is worth up to $1500 plus $400 per full-time equivalent employee, up to a maximum of 50 full-time employees (so up to a total of $21,500). Applications can be made at MyIR. Apply here.
