The Business Resilience and Growth Fund (£547,899.50) has been approved at Stirling Council’s Finance and Economy Committee. The fund is part of a package of support to businesses and low income families to be released by Stirling Council from the Scottish Government’s Local Authority COVID Economic Recovery Fund (LACER).
The purpose of the fund is to support local economic recovery and enable businesses to move from surviving the period of trading restrictions towards recovery, growth, adaptation and building resilience. The fund will focus on supporting businesses to: grow through innovation, use of new and digital technology, create employment opportunities, improve business energy efficiency and deliver carbon savings.
Businesses can apply for grants of up to £25,000. The full funding criteria as well as an online application form are available on the council website – Business Growth and Resilience Fund | Stirling Council.
The fund will remain open for applications until Friday, 6 January.
