Help for small businesses not eligible for grants
We have a limited amount of additional funding available to distribute to some small businesses on a discretionary basis. The Local Authority Discretionary Grants Fund is available for some businesses not eligible to receive financial support through the Small Business and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure grants.
Applications for the fund must be made by 12 June 2020. Our grant awards panel will consider all applications, with payments to successful applicants made during the week commencing 15 June 2020.
Further information about the fund, including details of which businesses are eligible, is available.
We also still have around £5 million worth of grants under the Small Business Grant Fund and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants to award to around 500 eligible businesses or charities who haven’t yet applied. Applications for the grants should be made online.
