Then businesses will be selected by a ballot to complete the remaining application process.

This process ensures all small businesses that are interested in this grant have an equal opportunity to apply and reduces the stress from applying as businesses can register their interest at any time once registrations open.

The Guidelines for this new round of grants are now available and small businesses are encouraged to put forward registrations of interest in the first stage of the application process after they open on 24 November 2022.
