Council further extends discretionary grant scheme for small businesses

As the government grant scheme programmes reach their final stages Warwick District Council is urging local businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to make an application to their discretionary grant scheme.

To date 94% of businesses qualifying for the government’s Small Business, Retail, Hospitality and Leisure schemes in our district have received over £33.5m in grant payments.

There is however additional funding of up to £10,000 available to businesses who were unable to access the original scheme through the Council’s discretionary programme, for which the Council is further extending its deadline and eligibility criteria.

For full details of the grant scheme including the eligibility criteria, visit . Applications close at midday on Friday 14 August 2020.  All applications made to the Council are subject to checks with a majority of businesses receiving payment within three to five working days.
