Coronavirus (COVID-19): Business Support

Adur & Worthing Councils processed over 8,000 applications and distributed over £60m of grant funding to businesses during the period April 2020 to March 2022.

All COVID-19 grant funding for businesses is now closed.

As the government restrictions around Covid-19 have dissolved, no further grant funding is expected from central government. The Councils will continue to monitor national announcements and any updates will be posted on this page.
