Mims Davies MP has applauded Mid Sussex District Council’s announcement of £72,000 being released for The Micro Business Grants Scheme. Having seen successful outcomes amongst micro-businesses through this funding stream in previous years, this type of grant enables businesses with ten or less employees to devise and implement sustainable projects that benefits the local economy.

Mims Davies MP comments:
I applaud Mid Sussex District Council continuing with offering The Micro Business Grants Scheme in this unprecedented year of upheavals which has affected businesses and communities in such an enormous way. Now more than ever, this type of grant offered to micro-businesses is pivotal since micro-businesses make up the majority of business activity in Mid Sussex and therefore these enterprises form the backbone for a post-COVID economic recovery”.
Councillor Stephen Hillier, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth says:
“Mid Sussex District Council has set aside £72,000 for The Micro Business Grants Scheme. We aim to encourage and support local businesses to grow within the current business climate and develop new ways of working in the future. We are committed to ensuring small businesses owners have every available opportunity to grow, thrive, and develop their business.”
