Almost £7 million has been made available to help businesses hit by the second coronavirus Lockdown. Eligible businesses across Shropshire are being urged to apply for this latest round of coronavirus support grants.
Business that can apply are those who have had to close during this 28-day lockdown period, including non-essential retail, leisure, personal care (such has hairdressers and nail salons), entertainment, sports facilities and hospitality.
Three levels of grants are available depending on the rateable value of the business. Those with a rateable value under £15,000 can apply for £1,334; those between £15,000 and £51,000 can apply for £2,000; and those with a rateable value over £51,000 can apply for £3,000.
A series of business support programmes and discretionary grant funding are also being developed to support businesses falling outside of these categories, and is due to be announced in the coming days. The discretionary grant funds will be used to support businesses who have seen significant losses during the pandemic. Further details of the scheme and application process will be made available as soon as possible.
