Mendip District Council has paid out millions to support local businesses during the pandemic. Now news of another funding stream is opening for applications - worth a quarter of a million pounds.

The Covid 19 Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) for businesses is now open for applications. As high demand is expected, the window to apply for discretionary funding will close at midnight on Friday 4 February.

Businesses in the Hospitality Supply Chain are expected to be the main beneficiaries of the funding, but other businesses are also invited to apply.
