Am I eligible?

You are eligible to submit an application if you are –

  • A small to medium sized business based in Cheshire or Warrington

  • A business who has commercial premises and/or employs additional staff other than yourself.

  • A business who has not previously received a Cheshire and Warrington Covid Recovery capital grant.

  • The holder of a business bank account and will use this for the project spend.

The grant can be used to fund capital items that are specific to the business’s recovery or restructure to enable it to trade through the Covid-19 outbreak and the more recent local Tier restrictions. Some examples of this are –

IT Equipment – e.g. Tablets used to support “Track & Trace” requirements and Contactless payment systems.

Fixed PPE Equipment – e.g. Plastic screens, sanitiser dispensers

Building Alterations – e.g. Building of outdoor seating, serving hatches, creation of one-way systems.

There are various exclusions/caps for the funding – further details on these can be found by clicking here. Applications will only be accepted via an online application form.

How do I apply?

The link to the application portal will be available here only when each application round is open.

The first round of applications opens on Wednesday 28th of October with the final of the five rounds opening for applications on Monday 14th December.

It is anticipated that the average grant award will be approximately £3,000 with a maximum grant of £5,000 only being awarded where applications demonstrate a significant impact on a business’s ability to return to trading rapidly and supports the retention of staff.
