Local Authority Discretionary Fund Increased to £120 million– 12/-2/2021

We are conscious that some ASVA members, including those within our Trade Membership, will not be eligible for the Visitor Attraction Support Fund. We would therefore highlight that the Local Authority Discretionary Fund, a fund which was set up to help businesses in Scotland who have not been eligible for previous business support grants, has been doubled from £60 million to £120 million.

This fund is managed by individual local authorities and funds are issued at their discretion. They will assess which businesses have not received support until now and are most in need. 

Please check your own local authority website for more details of which businesses can get support through this fund.
