Lincolnshire County Council announce grants for small businesses
Lincolnshire County Council has announced four new grant funds which are available to small businesses.
The four grant schemes are a business recovery fund for those who have not been able to access any grants, a digital voucher fund to support improving digitisation, invest for the future grant to contribute towards business expansion, and a rural business grant.
At a meeting of the council’s environment and economy scrutiny committee, members praised the £12m support for small businesses for its innovation and fast response to the latest lockdown which has put further strain on local businesses.
Coun Colin Davie (Con) said: “It’s vital we help as many businesses as possible to recover from the struggles of lockdowns.”
He added they ‘are the envy of many other areas of the country where action like this is just not possible’.
