30/03/2021 – Update on Local Business Support Grant – Round 3

Since the grant scheme closed, the Grants Team have been working as quickly as possible to review all applications in line with strict financial protocols, and distribute grants to businesses across the Borough.

Applications are being processed in strict order of when full evidence has been received. Over 50% of all applications received have been reviewed to date and a proportion of these have been paid. However, a significant number of applicants have had to be contacted as they have supplied incorrect or incomplete information causing delays.

All applicants should be contacted by the end of April 2021.

Sefton Council have a small, dedicated team ensuring that business enquiries and grant applications can be reviewed as quickly as possible during this unprecedented period of demand. Please do not  call or email for updates unless you think you have made an error on your original application. You will be contacted directly as soon as your application is processed. Thank you once more for your patience.
