Businesses in Galway have so far been awarded €4.3 million in funding under the COVID-19 Restart Grant Scheme.

The Restart Grant scheme offers between €2,000 and €10,000 to help small and micro businesses with the costs of reopening and reemploying staff.

Galway senator Seán Kyne says that to date, €4.3 million in grants have gone to Galway businesses, and another €2.84 million to those in Mayo.

The scheme is administer by local authorities, and it is to them that businesses must apply if they wish to receive funding.

Seán Kyne praised the scheme as helping “businesses and helping workers resume their jobs” after the damage done by closures and a loss of turnover due to the COVID-19 crisis.

“The grant remains open for applications and I’d encourage businesses in Galway City, County and in Mayo to visit their council website to find out more or make an application.
