Businesses in Redditch that have been affected by coronavirus restrictions are being urged to make sure they have applied for business support grants.

Businesses may be eligible for a number of Government grant schemes currently in operation, depending on the local Covid-19 alert level and whether they are required by law to close.

To make it easier to apply, Redditch Borough Council has streamlined the application process for all the schemes into a single online application form.

Cllr Matt Dormer, Leader of Redditch Borough Council, said: “The Government business support grants now take into account what tier of Covid-19 restrictions a local area is in, along with other factors, to support businesses affected by the restrictions.

“These grants can be vital and I would urge local businesses to ensure they have checked their eligibility and applied. It’s easy to do online.”

Redditch Borough has received over £2.6m in business support payments from the Government for the current period, including £921,000 for businesses that have been required to close owing to Coronavirus restrictions. These current schemes follow on from other Government support schemes that were available earlier this year.
