New Forest - Rural Business Resilience Fund CURRENTLY CLOSED

Specific support has been established for businesses in the New Forest who form part of the region's rural economy.

New Forest Rural Business Resilience Fund

We have launched a new Rural Business Resilience Fund for New Forest businesses. The £25,000 Fund has been developed in collaboration with New Forest District Council.

Grants of up to £2,500 will be provided to rural, small and medium-sized businesses looking to develop alternative ways of working during the coronavirus pandemic. The grants must be matched with private funds (50% of total costs); funding will be provided in advance, with full evidence of expenditure required within three months.

To be eligible, projects must safeguard jobs and demonstrate how they will benefit the New Forest's rural economy.
