Kirklees business grant details

Kirklees Council has now posted notice of the small business support grants that are becoming available for a wide range of businesses that have been forced to close because of the 28-day lockdown from 5 November. This is early notice of a fund still to be formally opened but national guidance previously seen indicates that local authorities can automatically provide grants to those who were successful in the previous round of bids from which most local bowling clubs received £10,000.
