Discretionary Business Grants – Making a difference

Rother District Council has secured additional funding from Government of approximately £700,000 to continue to support businesses through the impact of COVID – 19.

Whilst some of this money will be used to meet the final grants from previous discretionary schemes, the Council has approved a new discretionary grant scheme, designed to have a longer legacy for local businesses and the Rother economy.

The scheme has been designed to provide support to businesses within five distinct areas:

  1. Businesses closed due COVID 19 isolation
  2. Rural Businesses
  3. Empty Shops
  4. Empty Businesses rated property
  5. Staff Training and Development

Further details on the scheme can be found here.
