The Fund, which was aimed at a wide range of small businesses operating in sectors such as hospitality, leisure or events and included market trading, day-care nurseries, pubs and hotels.
On top of previous North Norfolk District Council grant schemes, a further 221 businesses were awarded funding that would have been missed by previous grants, providing a vital support for some heavily affected sectors.
Cllr. Richard Kershaw, portfolio holder for Business and Economic Development said:
“Once again Council Officers have gone the extra mile to devise and fulfil the successful completion of a Grant Scheme to help businesses during this difficult time.
We will continue to engage with businesses to help them overcome difficulties as COVID-19 continues.”
One local employer in the district who benefitted from a grant said:
“I would also like to thank the Team for this award as it will go a long way to securing jobs and local suppliers.”
Another small local business commented:
“it will certainly ease some financial pressure and enable us to maintain our staffing levels in these difficult times.”
A regular market trader fed back:
“It will make such a difference and will make this year much easier to cope with.”
