What happens next?
Expressions of Interest will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
All Expressions of Interest are expected to have been reviewed by 26 March 2021.
Applicants will receive an email notification which clearly confirms that they have been either successful or unsuccessful.
Successful businesses will be emailed a longer application form along with guidance information to help them complete the form.
The application form should be completed and returned within 2 weeks.
The maximum value of grant funding will be ring-fenced until such time as the application is either approved or rejected.
Approved applications will receive 60% of the value of their Digital Voucher up front. The applicant then has 6 weeks to complete their project.
A claim form will then need to be submitted providing evidence of the expenditure and the remaining 40% of funding can then be released.
Once all of the available funding is ring-fenced, any remaining applicants will be placed on a reserve list.
If a successful project does not progress, or does not require the maximum value of grant, the unused ring-fenced funding will be released.
Applicants on the reserve list will be contacted on a first come, first served basis if new funding becomes available.
The decision of the council is final and there is no right of appeal.
