Grant funding still available
Between Dorset Council and BCP Council, over £130.865m in grant funding has been paid out so far to local businesses.
These are grants of either £10,000 or £25,000 that do not need to be paid back. DO NOT MISS OUT!
However, there are approx 4,500 businesses which have still not claimed their grant.
The grants will not be paid to businesses automatically – you need to complete an online form to claim it.
You can claim the grant if your business is either in receipt of Small Business Rates Relief or Rural Rate Relief, or fall under the Expanded Retail Discount scheme (for tourism, leisure and hospitality businesses) with a property of rateable value less than £51,000.
