Recovery Revitalisation Fund

Sub Menu

The Recovery Revitalisation Fund will reopen at 10.00am on Tuesday 15th December 2020.


The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in many businesses in our local towns having to stop trading and rely on the various Covid-19 emergency support schemes to survive.  As we move into the recovery stage, restrictions are being lifted gradually, enabling some businesses to commence trading, albeit at a reduced level in many cases.  The new operating environment is presenting many challenges for our local business community. 

The financial aid package includes £58,000 from the Department for Communities for investment in urban settlements with a population of 5000 or more along with £58,000 from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) aimed at smaller settlements.


Please note that previous applicants awarded grant aid under Strand 1 cannot reapply.

This fund will support businesses to address the challenges presented by the public health safety measures which are required for businesses to operate safely and for members of the public to feel safe.



Council reserves the right to reduce the amount of funding awarded if we do not consider that the amount applied for represents value for money or if there are insufficient funds available to meet the request. 


Funding is very limited, and will be assessed on a first-come-first-served basis.  We are expecting a high number of applications and therefore the fund will close at very short notice. 


Guidance notes are available below. To apply for this fund, please click here.
