We’re inviting local businesses and community groups to apply for one-off grants to help our high streets thrive. Community groups can apply for funding up to £20,000; new businesses £10,000 and existing businesses £5,000. Applications over £5,000 will require in kind or match funding. Groups and businesses have until 28 February to make an application and we are seeking to make payments by the end of March. You can find out more about the Help us Thrive fund here, read the full guidance notes here, and then complete an application form here.
