Lock up your liquor with an NT Alcohol Secure Grant
If you operate licensed premises in the Northern Territory, you can partner with Dunwrights Doors and Gates to toughen up security to help protect your alcohol stock from theft and damage, with the NT Alcohol Secure Grant.
This Alcohol Secure Grant applies to you if your licensed premises is a:
- other liquor retailer.
The grant is can be either a direct grant for $10,000 or a grant of $20,000 if you match the government dollar for dollar.
For greater peace of mind, you can only access this grant if you choose to work with a locally-based company that knows its stuff and is approved by the government.
And Dunwrights Doors and Gates is one of those companies!
What can you do with the NT Alcohol Secure Grant?
The NT Government is making its Alcohol Secure Grant available so you can buy and install equipment and fittings that become PERMANENTLY fixed to your business.
In other words, this is NOT for passive security measures like security cameras. This is for ACTIVE security measure that put a strong barrier in place between your alcohol stocks and would-be theives.
The grant can be used to improve the security and safety of either:
- the premises as a whole, or
- the alcohol storage area inside the premises.
And if you have more than one outlet, you can apply for funding to support works on up to three approved premises.
Nothing gives more satisfaction to the guys here at at Dunwrights Doors and Gates, than to create a strong, secure property with tough doors and gates that still keep a building looking sweet!
