Speaking about the grant scheme, Deputy Leader of Walsall Council, Cllr Adrian Andrew said:
"The Council has worked hard in the past to ensure grant aid is distributed as quickly as possible. We have already issued 3813 Small Business Grants worth of over £43 million. As with the previous grant scheme, the Lock-Down Grants will be administered by our Business Rates Team. I would encourage all eligible businesses to go to our web site and begin the application process."
In addition to the above national scheme, there will be a discretionary scheme in place. Although the details of this scheme are yet to be determined. When further details and the application process are known, they will be made available on the same web page.
