Today we have announced a £12m package of support for businesses in Lincolnshire, to aid our local recovery from covid.


The support is particularly aimed at those that have not benefited from the government's covid support schemes and smaller businesses with 50 employees or fewer.


The focus will be on those businesses that have been unable to access the government's covid support schemes, such as those that are less than a year old or without premises or home-based. And there are likely to be separate pots of money for specific needs, such as a digital technology grant and a village shop grant. These will be launched on a staggered basis, with the general grant scheme opening first.


The main grant scheme is set to launch at 12pm on Tuesday 23 February, followed by the other schemes in early March.


Further details will follow before the schemes are launched, giving businesses plenty of time to collate the information required before the schemes open for applications.
