Executive Leader of Huntingdonshire District Council, Cllr Ryan Fuller said:

"The Council continues to closely monitor the impact of COVID restrictions on Huntingdonshire's businesses and, in response, we have established an Additional Restrictions Grant Extension (ARGE) scheme using funding provided by the government for this purpose. Having initially opened applications to the four categories of businesses that the government asked us to prioritise earlier in the year, we are once again extending the scheme to include applications from all other businesses that have suffered as a result of the restrictions. These direct grants are an immediate response to the current economic difficulties and are part of an evolving wider package of business support that we will be implementing in stages in the coming weeks and months. Further details of the extended ARG scheme are available on HDC's website and applications are due to open on the 16 December 2020."
