Small Warwickshire businesses hit by pandemic can apply for new grants

SMALL businesses in Warwickshire hit by the coronavirus pandemic can apply for new grants from the County Council to boost their recovery.

The county has a £250,000 grant fund dedicated to supporting the retail and hospitality sectors in Warwickshire.

Small and micro businesses in the retail and hospitality sectors trading for a minimum of one year, can apply for grants of between £2,000 and £7,500 to put towards the costs of capital investments.

There has already been a huge response to these grants and demand is high, however, it is a competitive process and not a first come, first served programme. The deadline for applications is 9am on Friday, September 11.

The funding is part of an initial £5 million support package from Warwickshire County Council to boost immediate economic recovery in the county.
