3. Grants for East Devon businesses
The council is working to ensure further financial support for businesses impacted by lockdown is made available as soon as possible.
Grant applications are being encouraged from:
Pubs which primarily sell drinks rather than food, are registered for business rates and were affected by tier 2 from 2nd December can apply for a one-off £1,000 payment from the Christmas Support Payment for wet-led pubs. Pubs should apply for the grant before 31st January 2021, when the fund closes.
Businesses which pay business rates and were legally forced to close from 2nd December to 4th January should apply for the Local restrictions support grant - Closed v2.
