Rushcliffe Borough Council is giving eligible high street businesses or established business groups another boost with a COVID Digital Recovery Grant that can further help them adapt and improve their online presence or sales.
Small to medium size retail, hospitality, personal care, leisure, tourism and other enterprises in the Borough can now access up to £1,000 over and above existing central government grant support by visiting https://www.rushcliffe.gov.uk/business/coronavirus-businesssupport/fundingforbusinesses/.
Part of the Council’s recovery plan for the pandemic, the funds allow businesses to create or improve a website, seek advice and support on improving their social media presence, or create greater online transactional capability.
It can also aid local retail groups or traders’ associations by supporting or enhancing the development of, for example, an online marketplace for their town or village.
Applicants must be a High Street business which pays business rates to the Council, or receives small business rate relief, with between 1.5 and 30 employees. All appropriate licences and permissions must be also in place.
You can read the full criteria for the grants and apply online at the website.
