Ulster Unionist MP Andy Allen has written to Belfast businesses to advise of new funding available.
Noting the “adverse impact” that Covid-19 has had on “many including local businesses”, the letter outlines that up to 100% of costs of capitol items up to a maximum of £2,500 and a minimum grant of £500 will be available to businesses.
Grants can be used to cover costs associated with Covid-19 adaptations, including sanitisation stations, signage, awnings or canopies.
The offer will be available from September 2 2020 until either 12 noon October 13 2020 or when all funds have been committed.
The scheme will go live at www.belfastcity.gov.uk/funding where you can find further information.
Applicants are advised to not commit to any expenditure until they are in receipt of confirmation that their grant application has been approved.
