Broadland District Council Business Grants
Broadland and South Norfolk District Councils have been two of the first in the country to help local businesses and have distributed more than £1 million (in each district) in business grants. We will start to distribute the discretionary grants from 3 December 2020.
Payments continue to be made under the Local Restrictions Grant to those businesses registered for Business Rates that were prevented from opening during the period of National Restrictions that finished on 2 December. This scheme remains open. If you are, or know of a business that may be eligible I’d encourage you to get in touch with BDC and apply.
The council has received additional funding from Government to set up an Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) to provide further support to businesses. We will use this to pay discretionary business grants to qualifying businesses that are not covered by other grant schemes or where additional funding is needed. The first phase of this additional discretionary award scheme was launched on the 3 December and will remain open until midnight on the 23 December. Applications are already being received and progress of the grants awarded will be provided in future updates.
