Government confirms local business support funding

The Government has confirmed that nearly £3.4m in Local Restrictions Support Grant Allocations is being made available to support businesses in Eden during the current national lockdown.

As with previous schemes the responsibility for administering the distribution of these grants will fall to Eden District Council as the local authority.

The Council is currently reviewing the Government issued eligibility guidance with a view to establishing the necessary procedures for delivering this vital source of funding to eligible local businesses as quickly as possible.

Information on eligibility and distribution will be shared, via the Council’s website, as soon as it is available.
