Funding to support businesses and communities

As part of the response to moving to a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scottish Government distributed £80m to local authorities through the Local Authority Community and Economic Recovery Fund. The council approved proposals to distribute this funding on 22 June 2022, which included direct funding to households, funding for local support services, and the allocation of £200,000 to the creation of a Business Transition Fund to support businesses to adapt to new ways of working or make investment to remain competitive and resilient.
