Liverpool City Region Care Providers’ GrantMay 2021 The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the Liverpool City Region’s childcare and care home businesses including a fall in demand alongside an increase in costs to manage within a Covid safe environment.  As a direct response to the challenges these businesses are facing, a new fund, the LCR Care Providers’ Grant, has been created by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.  The grant will be administered by each of the six local authorities that form the Combined Authority, namely Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.~
The LCR Care Providers’ Grant will be allocated quickly and efficiently, with the first funding to reach applicants within 10 working days of the application being approved, subject to the application being compliant.  Successful applicants will be notified by email, and payments will be made by BACS (payments usually take 3 working days to arrive in accounts). Please note, due to the volume of applications expected, it may take several weeks to consider applications and for applicants to receive a decision.
An initial “window” will open for receipt of applications for the Liverpool City Region Care Providers’ Grant on Tuesday 4 May 2021 and CLOSE on Tuesday 18 May 2021 at 5 pm. In order to be considered, applications must be received before the window closes. Please see the link Coronavirus: current advice | HBC newsroom
