Angus Council is increasing the amount of funding successful applicants can receive through the Covid-19 Discretionary Fund after receiving additional funding from the Scottish Government.
Local businesses with less than 50 employees can apply to the council for one-off awards of £4000, £6000 or £10000 if they have been unable to access any other Covid-19 financial support.
The increased payments will be in line with employment tiers, as follows:
- businesses employing no employees – £4,000
- businesses employing between 2 and 10 staff – £6,000
- businesses employing between 11 and 50 staff – £10,000.
The council will contact applicants who have already received a payment from the discretionary fund to provide additional evidence before receiving a top-up to bring their original payment up to the new levels.
New applicants to the fund will automatically receive the full higher payment and can apply through Angus Council’s website https://www.angus.gov.uk/business/angus_council_discretionary_fund
