Business Support Grants
All businesses within the town centre are advised to complete the Business Support Grant application to ensure Colchester Borough Council has all key information essential to distributing grants that you as a business are eligible for. Since November 2020, a raft of business support grants have been made available, all with their own criteria meaning that essentially, one size doesn't fit all.
The BID has been involved in weekly discussions with the Grants team at Colchester Borough Council to deliver feedback and to input concerns and struggles from our businesses. If you have any enquiries about available grants to your premises, please get in touch with our BID Manager by emailing email@example.com.
If you have completed the application form since November, your premises will automatically receive all grants that you are eligible for including new grants released in the future. Therefore, please do not apply more than once to avoid confusion with your application.
