The Scottish Government’s Pivotal Enterprise Resilience Fund (PERF), a £90m support package for SMEs that are vital to Scotland’s economy and have been impacted by COVID-19 will reopen for new applications from 10.30am today.
This grant is for businesses that can play a critical role in supporting Scotland’s recovery but need some immediate support. It might be to get back up and running or to maintain or diversify your current operations.
If you have the potential to continue trading and supporting employment but have an immediate cash flow challenge, then this grant is for you.
The Government is continuing to work hard to process offers of grant applications so that all approved applicants can receive their funding as quickly as possible. Businesses who applied should receive communications by email over the next few days as to their status.
Alongside its partners, the Scottish Government continues to closely monitor the volume of new applications for the PERF and the £20 million Creative, Tourism & Hospitality Enterprises Hardship Fund, with both funds expected to reach their full capacity in the coming days, therefore it is anticipated that these will close at 5pm on Monday, 18 May.
