Businesses in central Bedfordshire to receive top-up payments as they recover from pandemic Bedford News

Businesses that have already received Supplemental Restriction Grant (ARG) 1, 2 and 3 to help them get through the pandemic will receive a top-up payment from Central Bedfordshire Council.

Since the launch of the first Additional Restriction Grant (ARG) in December, the board has said it continues to expand the scope of the program to provide as much support as possible for businesses.

Now, with more certainty as to the number of eligible businesses, he says he is able to free up additional funds to help local businesses when they reopen.

Businesses have nothing to do. If you have already applied for an ARG grant, you do not need to reapply.

Executive Member of Corporate Resources, Adviser David Shelvey said: “So far we have succeeded in providing almost £ 4million in financial support to local businesses. By supplementing businesses that have received an additional restriction grant, we are able to further support some of these areas that are starting to reopen with an additional cash flow increase. “

The council expects to receive additional government funding in July and will then open another application window to provide further opportunities for businesses to apply for financial support.
