The latest grant relief to assist businesses during the Tier 4 lockdown is now available. A range of businesses can benefit from the support and details are available on the Walsall Council web site. The council is administering the distribution of the grant aid on behalf of central government.
Since the initial lockdown early in 2020, the council has issued 5,968 emergency government grants worth in excess of £48 million.
Some of the grants are based on the rateable value of business premises but businesses who share premises or have no premises may also be able to apply. The grants also cover market traders and B&B’s. Discretionary grants are also available.
Speaking about the grants, Deputy Leader of Walsall Council, Cllr Adrian Andrew said:
“These grants have been a vital lifeline for businesses across the borough. As funds become available from central government we have been working to distribute them as quickly as possible. The web page has all the information needed to start the application process and I would encourage businesses to go online and ensure that they aren’t missing out.”
