Business Grants Update 20/4/20
This evenings business rates support grant update.
🟥 By the close of business today a total of 1551 grants have paid out (11 up from Friday)
🟨 A total of £17,430,000 (up £215,000 up from Friday) has been paid out to date.
We’ve now paid out 59% of the funding allocated to us, but we still haven’t had applications from over 500 businesses that we consider are eligible for the grant. This is despite the publicity and our attempts to make contact by letter, telephone and email. We are exploring and working through a range of options to get in touch.
In addition, we are still working through the applications which have various problems or issues that officers are working through to try and process.
If you are aware of a business that may be eligible and they haven’t yet supplied any details, please urge them to complete the webform at http://antmck.uk/tf
