As of the 1 June Canterbury City Council is accepting applications for discretionary business grants, intended to support businesses affected by COVID-19. The council has allocated a 15 day window to put your application in – so please urgently click the link below to check your eligibility. The deadline is before midnight on Monday 15 June.
The grants are funded by central government and the scheme will be administered in accordance with the guidance issued by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on Wednesday 13 May 2020.
The scheme is designed to help businesses that were ineligible for the earlier business grants scheme. It is intended to support those with fixed property-related costs and who have experienced a significant drop in income due to COVID-19. Applications from eligible businesses will be scored using these two criteria to assess the level of grant given.
