This latest initiative comes in addition to the Restart Grants and previous Local Restriction Support Grants to help businesses respond to the challenges of COVID-19. Businesses will be able to apply for up to £5,000 to help them adapt, diversify, and implement long-term sustainability. More specifically the funding can be used for: 1-2-1 specialist advice to address immediate needs in response to Covid-19 – e.g. digital or sector specialists; Purchasing of equipment to adapt business processes – e.g. sanitising stations or equipment to support the movement of business activities outside; Adopting new technology to deliver or diversify business activities – e.g. ecommerce platforms, contactless payments, hardware/software to support remote working; Developing or purchasing new environmentally-friendly products or energy-efficient equipment that will reduce waste and promote the transition to a low carbon economy For further details and information on how to apply please visit your local authority website. City of Lincoln Council | West Lindsey District Council As far as we are aware this scheme is currently only being launched in Lincolnshire. If details of any similar funding initiatives are released for other districts we will provide another update.
