F&H High Street Fund COVID-19 UPDATE

Folkestone & Hythe High Street Fund – UPDATE COVID-19

The Folkestone & Hythe High Street Fund was launched in October 2019 with the aim of supporting projects to drive the regeneration of our town centre and high streets.  Since the launch we have approved 22 applications, with grants awarded to the value of £338,345.

However, during these uncertain times we will keep the fund open to new applications but we will not be reviewing these until 1st September 2020.   However, unfortunately due to resource issues, support from the Economic Development team will not be available until this time to help applicants with their submissions.  This will be subject to ongoing review and this date may be brought forward if possible.

What does this mean if you have already received confirmation of a successful application?

We will continue to process claims where projects have been successfully completed in line with the terms of the signed Grant Agreement and where evidence is submitted as required in support of any financial claims.
