The Scottish Government has just announced that the Strategic Framework Business Fund grant scheme will close to new applicants on 22 March 2021.
The Highland Council has already assessed and approved 5178 applications for this grant fund.
On Monday 22 March 2021, when the next four weekly payments are due to be paid, grants to the value of £11,571,200 will be paid out to these businesses.
Highland Council’s Economy & Regeneration Manager, Andy McCann, said:
“This is the last chance for businesses who are eligible for a Temporary Closure Grant to apply.
“We urge businesses to go immediately to the Council’s website and carefully read the guidance.
“If they believe their business is eligible, gather the bank and business evidence required and apply using our online form.”
