Coronavirus Business Grants

We have distributed a range of Government grants to support businesses that have had to close, or have been significantly impacted, by coronavirus restrictions.

Businesses who have suffered as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, but have not as yet recieved any financial assistance through previous Covid relief schemes, are invited to apply to CARF (Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund) relief. Eligible businesses will recieve a credit applied to their business rate liability. Fenland has been allocated £1.9million from Government for this scheme. 

View more information about the CARF scheme.
