Ryedale District Council has administered the distribution of £45m of grants to more than 7,500 businesses.
Government grants to support businesses during COVID lockdown have now finished, so you will not be able to make a new application. Support for businesses has now switched to providing advice and guidance to businesses, including signposting to what other help is available. Please contact the Business Team to discuss your business needs and explore how we can help you.
