New Grants for Small Businesses

HM Government has announced two separate funds for recovery grants for small business affected by COVID-19;

1. Specifically aimed at the Tourism sector

2. Open to all sectors

In Lancashire the grants will be administered by BOOST and further detail is to follow in coming days

SMEs are eligible (same criteria as ERDF) and can register their interest in the grant scheme now and will be contacted when the scheme goes live to apply via an EOI.

Grants are non-repayable and 100% (no match is required), to a maximum of £5k per SME able to evidence that their business has been adversely affected by the pandemic.
