Watford Neighbourhood Business Grant.
The Watford Neighbourhood Business Grant has been launched.
This grant provides up to £5,000 of financial assistance for businesses based in the local borough, that have found their operations impacted by Covid restrictions.
The grant is designed to help businesses in these areas improve their offering to customers and encourage people to shop locally. This could mean giving their premises a makeover, sprucing up a shopfront, or developing websites to drive online sales.
To apply, a business must be based in Watford, be financially viable, and have been negatively affected by Covid-19 restrictions. Although these grants usually require match funding from the applicants, Watford Borough Council is offering to cover 80% of the costs, meaning that businesses need only supply 20%.

Applications will close on 31st August 2022 or when the total fund has been allocated.
