South Holland District Council: Recovery and Growth Fund

South Holland District Council: Recovery and Growth Fund

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, South Holland District Council has created the South Holland Recovery and Growth Fund, providing both capital and revenue grants to businesses based within the District.

The fund, which launched on Monday 2 August, is open to all businesses that are based within the South Holland District and offers between 60-80% contributions towards both capital and revenue-related investments.

Unlike the previous emergency COVID grants that the Council has helped distribute, which supported running costs to help keep businesses trading, this fund is focused on future development and growth, and can be used to support a wide range of investments.

Examples of things that can be funded include:

– Website development
– Staff training & development costs
– Business advice or consultancy costs
– Development of marketing materials or promotional activity
– Equipment and machinery or other assets that can help your business to grow
– Cost of renovating your shop front within planning and conservation area rules
– Innovations to help your business to adapt and change after COVID-19
– Development of a new product or service to help your business to diversify.

The Council has created the scheme using the District’s remaining allocation of Government COVID-19 support for businesses. Available grants are between £1,000 and £25,000, with all applications individually assessed by the Council’s economic development team.

Applications are open from Monday 2 August until Friday 31 December, with all grants awarded needing to be fully claimed by 31 March 2022.

All applications will be assessed on their own merits and grants awarded on a competitive basis, so funds may expire before the 31 December closing date.

Business will need to be able to contribute towards their planned investment and we will need to see that businesses can fund the total cost of the investment up front, as grants will be claimed retrospectively.
