Kirklees Council has had a fantastic response from local businesses seeking to draw down a Small Business Grant or Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant as part of the Government’s COVID-19 support package.
As of this morning over 4,300 grant applications have been submitted.
Council staff are working hard to process the submissions, undertake any checks required by Government and get payments out as soon as possible.
BACS payments will commence later today and will continue on a daily basis until all of the grants have been paid.
However, we know that many more Kirklees businesses are eligible for a grant
Please would appreciate you could share this article within your local networks to make sure all businesses receive support as soon as possible.
Further information and the online application form is available at www.kirklees.gov.uk/coronavirusbusiness.
Business owners can also contact the Council business rates team if they have any questions about the grants at email@example.com although regrettably it is not possible to answer queries about the timing of individual payments due to the unprecedented volume of enquiries.
