In late October the Government announced a support package for Auckland businesses affected by ongoing alert levels as the country transitions to the new COVID-19 Protection Framework. 

Heart of the City is an Activate Tāmaki Makaurau partner and we want to share how this could help your business over the coming months.

Activate Tāmaki Makaurau has been set up to connect existing Auckland businesses with that support.
