Businesses that have been forced to close as a result of the latest COVID-19 national restrictions are now able to apply for grant funding from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
Following further guidance from the government on financial support for businesses, grants of up to £1,334 per month are available for businesses with a rateable value of up to £15,000, grants of up to £2,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 to £50,999 and £3,000 per month for properties with a rateable value of £51,000 and above.
To access the funding, businesses will need to provide further details to confirm their eligibility for a grant as well as their payment details by completing a form online at www.basingstoke.gov.uk/local-restrictions-support-grant.
Maria said “I welcome this additional funding for our local businesses that had to close as a result of the latest COVID-19 national restrictions. This is a challenging time for businesses, and I am pleased that the Borough Council is providing support to where it is needed most.”
Alongside this government support, the council is finalising a new discretionary grant scheme to support other businesses who are not eligible for other grant funding and have had to close or have been severely impacted by the new national restrictions.
