Central Bedfordshire Council to provide Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) top up payments
Businesses who have previously received an Additional Restriction Grant (ARG) 1, 2 and 3 will receive a top up payment from Central Bedfordshire Council.
Since the first Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) launched in December, we have continued to expand the scope of the scheme in order to provide the most support for businesses. Now we have certainty around the number of eligible businesses, we are able to make additional funds available to help local businesses as they reopen.
Businesses do not need to do anything. If you have applied for a previous ARG grant, you do not need to make a new application
Executive Member of Corporate Resources, Councillor David Shelvey said: “So far we have successfully delivered almost £4m in financial support for local businesses. By topping up businesses who received an Additional Restrictions Grant we are able to further support some of those sectors who are beginning to reopen with an extra cash boost.”
The Council expects to receive further funding from Government in July, and we will be opening another application window then in order to provide further opportunities for businesses to apply for financial support. This way we will be able to support as many businesses as possible. Details on this opportunity will be posted on our website during June.
