"Living With Covid" Town Centre Support Grant


Suffolk Growth is seeking to invest COMF funding of around £80k across a small number of Suffolk town centre projects that support good practice and promotes protective actions in “Living with COVID”. ​

While COVID legal restrictions are lifted, "Living with COVID" guidance remains, & we want our town centres to take on board learning & apply this in practice and actions that support town centre confidence, resilience and recovery.​

Awards of grants between £5,000 - £10,000 will be made available to cover costs associated with equipment or activity that supports the transition of approaches to “living with COVID”. We anticipate funding between 5 – 10 projects.  ​


The fund is open to local authorities, town councils and business improvement districts (BIDs) across Suffolk. We would encourage lead organisations to liaise with local partners and add value where possible through match funding or aligned projects. ​

Timescale: applications must be received by 1st July 2022, 5pm ​

Awards will be announced on 15th July 2022.
