Two new funding support schemes for companies in Lichfield and Burntwood have been welcomed by local business chiefs.
Both the Small Business Grants Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Business Grants Fund aim to help companies during the disruption caused by the coronavirus shutdown.
The Small Business Grants Fund will provide grants of up to £10,000 per eligible business.
The Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Business Grants Fund is available for those eligible for discounts under the Expanded Retail Discount Scheme.
Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership chairman Alun Rogers said:
“These are unprecedented and extremely challenging times for businesses, especially SMEs and those in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.
“We want to ensure they have all the support available to steer through the coming weeks and months.
“We welcome the prompt launch of both grant funding schemes and would urge businesses to find out more as soon as possible as timing is crucial.”Alun Rogers, Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire LEP
