Restart Grants for Wiltshire businesses
Originally published by Trevor Carbin Liberal Democrat
Wiltshire Council has paid out more than £11m in the recently announced Restart Grants to 1,520 businesses, and is now opening the window for new applications to support businesses as they reopen following the easing of lockdown. In total, £156m has been paid so far during the pandemic.
From Tuesday 27 April, new applications in sectors such as non-essential retail businesses, and hospitality businesses such as personal care, pubs, leisure and hotels, can apply for these grants to help them recover from the pandemic - if they haven't already received a grant.
To help businesses establish whether they are eligible and how much they may be awarded, the council has produced a downloadable here: www.wiltshire.gov.uk/business-advice-support-covid19-grants.
The grants are worth up to £6,000 for non-essential retail, and up to £18,000 for hospitality businesses, and replace the previous Local Restrictions Support Grants (LRSG).
For more information on the grants, to apply and to sign up for the business newsletter, go to www.wiltshire.gov.uk/business-advice-support-covid19-grants; or to find out more about eligibility, visit GOV.UK: check if you're eligible for a coronavirus restart grant.
