Discretionary Grants Awarded to 213 Small Businesses in North Herts

I developed a way in which local authorities could help local businesses who have been financially impacted due to the coronavirus pandemic but were not eligible for previous government support schemes - providing councils with excess grant funding.

I'm pleased that North Herts District Council (NHDC) has recently announced that it will be paying out over £1.3 million in discretionary grants to over 200 small businesses in North Herts.

A total of 281 businesses applied, 213 qualified and NHDC has awarded funding to all of them. Brilliant news!
