The Government has updated its guidance for Local Authorities on paying grants to support businesses during national lockdown periods.
The first payment cycle for eligible closed businesses was 42 days from 5 January 2021.
The second payment cycle for eligible closed businesses will be for a 44-day period up to the end of the financial year and will follow on directly from the first payment cycle to cover 16 February – 31 March 2021.
The Council will be in the process of updating their website with information about the next cycle of payments, and you will find more information here: https://blackburn.gov.uk/coronavirus/support-business
We’ll keep you updated on information when we have it.
