Support for Businesses in Warwick District:

The Government has announced a range of cash grant payments to small businesses and also to those businesses in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors. These payments will provide support during the evolving and uncertain times as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find out how to apply here for the grant.

Cllr Richard Hales, Portfolio Holder for Finance comments:

“We are doing all we can to administer the grant support to businesses that qualify without delay. Letters are being sent to all the eligible businesses on our database and you should receive these next week. Please read the information thoroughly and complete the form carefully, to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays and we can get the grant to your business as quickly as possible.”

Update received 30th March  from Warwick District Council

Warwick District Council are working in partnership with all support agencies across the sub-regional group and would suggest the best place to signpost people to locally, in addition to the Government website, is to the CWLEP Growth Hub www.cwlep.com.

All companies in receipt of the Small Business Rate Relief or the Rural Rate Relief or eligible for the grants to hospitality, retail and leisure will be receiving communication via letter and email and this letter should be with you by Tuesday 31st March. The application form is on-line on the website already.

On-going dialogue is crucial at the moment to support businesses to ensure that those who are eligible can get the grants and those who are not can access the other financial support and to identify gaps to put pressure on the Government to extend support to everyone.
