Recovery Revitalisation Fund
The Recovery Revitalisation Fund is now open for Applications via our Grants and Funding Hub and shall remain open until 5pm Monday 24th August 2020. Funding is very limited, and will be assessed on a first-come-first-served basis. Download guidance notes at bottom of this page or within the Grants and Funding Hub. We expect a high number of applications to the fund and therefore dependent on the availability of funding reserve the right to close the fund at very short notice.
Please also see our Business Grants and Funding Page for information about other business grants administered via Council.
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is pleased to announce that it has been allocated £449,000 for a COVID-19 Recovery Revitalisation Programme. The financial package includes £340,000 from the Department for Communities for investment in urban settlements with a population of 5000 or more along with £109,000 from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) aimed at smaller settlements.

The funding will be distributed via a Small Grant Scheme, covering two levels of capital investment.
Business owners can apply for up to £500 for PPE equipment, hand sanitisers, internal social distancing measures, Perspex screening, signage, contactless payment or app development for booking systems.
