Hundreds of businesses not yet applied for Covid-19 funding

Apply for a grant Apply for a business grant

Hundreds of businesses in Exeter invited to make a claim for a grant to help them through the Coronavirus outbreak have yet to do so.

The Council is helping distribute £25 million of government funding in the form of either Small Business Grants or Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants.

Last week, the Council wrote to 2,000 businesses in Exeter inviting them to make a claim.

And on Thursday evening, only around a third to a half of those businesses eligible had responded.

City Council Director Bindu Arjoon said they were keen to get the money out to businesses to help them through these difficult times.

“We are ready to pay the money to businesses that are struggling and the funds can be paid into their banks within days. All they have to do is respond to the letters or emails that were sent out last week,” she added.

A secure online claim form is available to complete on our website: Apply for business grant support
