Eligible businesses can apply for funding for costs to help them improve ventilation on their premises to help combat the spread of COVID-19. It will remain open until the 31st March 2022 or when funds are exhausted – whichever occurs first.
Businesses can claim up to £2,500 per eligible premises to recover the costs of carrying out work to improve ventilation and air quality. This could include:
- installing of carbon dioxide monitors
- repairs to windows and vents
Support will initially target settings where people come into close contact, such as restaurants, bars and gyms.
