To ensure that those in greater need of financial support receive help as soon as possible, we are prioritising applications from eligible businesses that did not receive funding during the first lockdown. Prioritised grant applications will be processed and paid each week to ensure businesses receive funding as soon as possible. Remaining applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis following the scheme deadline.
The government guidance on both of the schemes can be found here.
