Today, the application process opened for something called the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The ERDF Recovery Grant (which we blogged about last week) is available to small and medium companies, with a value of between £1,000 and £3,000.
We strongly encourage all of our friends and clients to put themselves in the running for this ERDF-Funded Covid-19 Recovery Grants Scheme. The fund exists to help us come out of this difficult period, so please, read on, and find out the information to date on this scheme.
