Apply for a grant

Anyone caught falsifying their records to make a fraudulent application for any of the available grants will be prosecuted and ordered to repay the money.

Grants under these schemes are considered to be State Aid/Subsidy. It is the responsibility of the business to ensure they do not accept grant payments that would exceed the State Aid/Subsidy limits. If the limit is exceeded, the grant may be required to be repaid.
