New Emergency Cleaning Stimulus Scheme to support employment opportunities for cleaners
About the scheme
The NSW Government announced on 17 March 2020 a $2.3 billion health boost and stimulus package in response to COVID-19 that will support jobs, healthcare, small business and the community.
As part of the stimulus package the Government has further committed $250 million to support the employment of extra cleaners of public infrastructure.
In addition to scaling up cleaning services supplied by current cleaning supply arrangements including the whole-of-government Cleaning Services Contract, Government is seeking capable cleaning companies to prequalify to the Emergency Cleaning Stimulus Scheme to supply the increased demand for cleaning services arising from the COVID-19 crisis.
