02 Apr Business Grant Approval
MSDC have set up an online website at www.GrantApproval.co.uk for local businesses to register – you will need to do this in the personal name of the business owner. If you qualify for a number of grants you only need to register once. The MSDC will ask you when registering to put some details in including an email address. We will then email all businesses registered early next week by the latest advising them to complete the information required. We are planning to pay all qualifying businesses – there will be certain checks we have to do as part of the process to protect public funds – week commencing 6th April 2020 provided all the information required has been given.
Letters are going out to local businesses who MSDC believe may qualify from today but they are conscious that a number of businesses are closed.
