The leader of Havering Council has outlined how the latest government business grants are to be divided.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak yesterday (January 5) confirmed that additional one-off top up grants - of up to £9,000 - will be available to help businesses withstand this difficult period.
This allocation comes alongside a £594million discretionary fund to support those which are ineligible.
Top up grants will be "automatically extended" to businesses in Havering that have applied during the November/December period, with applications still open.
Of the discretionary fund, Cllr White said: “We are currently putting proposals together for the new wave of discretionary grant funding, which will have specific eligibility criteria to ensure the limited funds help those businesses most in need."
