COVID-19 Business Improvement District Resilience Fund

Support provided by Scottish Government

What does this involve?

Business Improvement Districts (BID) can play a vital role in the coronavirus (COVID-19) response in their local area. Once a Business Improvement District determines how best to support local businesses and communities and agrees on a plan with their local authority, they can then apply for a share of the £1 million COVID-19 BID Resilience Fund from the Scottish Government to support that project or programme.
