New fund launched to help businesses and local organisations
The funds are to help businesses and community organisations to:
- respond to the different trading environment, resulting from the coronavirus pandemic
- plan for future growth and development
- develop new products and services
- improve infrastructure
- assess the feasibility of future initiatives
The grants are to encourage the creation of new businesses and jobs, while safeguarding existing jobs.
Small and medium sized enterprises, including start-ups and social enterprises, can apply, as well as community organisations, including business/community groups, parish, town and district/borough councils.
Priority will be given to projects that support Devon’s plans for recovery and growth, including support for community and business sectors hardest hit by the pandemic, such as tourism, hospitality, retail, food and drink.
