F&HDC COVID Discretionary Business Grant Scheme

May 29, 2020 4:05 PM

Money / banknotes (pounds sterling) in handFolkestone & Hythe District Council will be launching their COVID Discretionary Business Grant Scheme at 9am Monday 1 June 2020.

This scheme draws on the Government's 5% top-up allocation to the Council for the original Small Business Grant (SBG) and Retail, Hospitality & Leisure Grant (RHLG) schemes for a discretionary scheme to support small and microbusinesses that did not benefit from the earlier funding.

While Government guidance has made suggestions on the types of business that should be prioritised for this funding, councils have been given discretion on some of the eligibility criteria to reflect local economic circumstances. The key features of the F&HDC scheme and further details about the scheme can be found at https://www.folkestone-hythe.gov.uk/business-grant-scheme

An electronic application form will be available for online completion from 9am Monday 1st June.
