SODC is to make extra funding available to help businesses that have been severely affected by Covid-19 restrictions to get through the winter months.
Local businesses can apply for a grant of up to £15,000 to help to keep them going through the quieter trading months. In total, South Oxfordshire District Council has £1,239,551 available.
The funds are available for new businesses or those in the events, travel and tourism sectors, and comes from the government’s Additional Restrictions Grant, which aims to help organisation most affected by the ongoing pandemic.
Businesses based in the South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse districts can find out if they are eligible via the South and Vale Business Support website.
Applications for support are open until midday on 16 December.
Applicants will be assessed on evidence that demonstrates the ongoing effect of the pandemic on their business and those eligible will receive support early in the new year.
