Economic Resilience Fund – Find out if your business is eligible for support from the third phase
Businesses across Wales can now find out if they can apply for funding from the third phase of the Economic Resilience Fund (ERF) by visiting the online Eligibility Checker.

Economy Minister Ken Skates announced the new phase of the fund last week which will see an additional £140m being made available to businesses. The eligibility checker will enable businesses to see if they can access the £80m tranche of the fund which will support firms with projects that can help the transition to the economy of tomorrow and will be open to micro businesses, SMEs and large businesses.

Of this, £20m will be ring fenced to support tourism and hospitality businesses  who are facing particular challenges as we enter the winter months.

Micro businesses (employing between 1 and 9 people) will be able to apply for up to £10,000 on the condition they match this with their own investment of at least 10%; For Tourism and Hospitality micro businesses there will be discretion for grant awards of up to 100%;
SMEs (employing between 10 and 249 people) will be able to apply for up to £150,000. Small businesses (up to 50 employees) will be required to match this with their own investment of at least 10% and medium businesses (between 50 and 249 employees) with at least 20% of their own funding; For Tourism and Hospitality SME’s there will be discretion for grant awards of up to 100%;
Large businesses (employing 250+ people) will be able to apply for up to £200,000 on the condition they match this with their own investment of at least 50%.
The Welsh Government is currently working with local authorities and the Welsh Local Government Association on the detail of the Local Lockdown Business Fund that will support businesses impacted by local restrictions. Further details and information on how to access this fund will be published shortly on the Business Wales website. The Local Lockdown Business Fund, worth up to £60m, will provide grants based on the Non-Domestic Rates (NDR) system to businesses who meet eligibility requirements and have been materially impacted by local lockdown. 

Eligible Retail, leisure and hospitality businesses in Wales occupying properties with a rateable value of between £12,001 and £51,000 could access a grant worth £1,500.

A £1,000 grant will be available to eligible businesses that have a rateable value of £12,000 or less.

Economy Minister Ken Skates said: “Welsh Government support has been crucial for businesses throughout Wales in dealing with the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Key to this has been our unique Economic Resilience Fund which has already helped protect more than 100,000 jobs.

“Today we are opening the eligibility checker for the next £80m of the fund so businesses can find out if they are likely to benefit. We have deliberately ring-fenced £20m of this money for Tourism and hospitality businesses because we recognise the particular pressures they are under at this challenging time.

“The application process will open during the week of 26th October. We will also be providing further information on how businesses impacted by local lockdowns can access a share of the £60m we have committed for this purpose very soon.”

Senedd roundup: Minister reveals virus testing plans as schools reopen – Nation.Cymru

Health Minister Vaughan Gething has revealed the government is undertaking a programme of antibody testing of school staff who have been working in hub schools during the coronavirus pandemic.

The government has also made plans for the rapid deployment of antigen testing if there are any outbreaks of Covid-19 in schools or if schools have failed to follow the government guidelines for infection prevention measures.

Schools in Wales have been closed to most pupils since the start of the coronavirus outbreak in March but are due to reopen on Monday.

Around 6,000 pupils, the children of key workers and those deemed vulnerable, have attended hub schools across Wales since the shutdown and residential and special schools have continued operating.

Mobile Testing Units could be deployed if required and plans have been made to establish temporary testing facilities and drop off and collection routes if needed.

In a written statement Mr Gething revealed testing is being rolled out to at least 10% of schools staff who have worked in hub schools during the pandemic.

Over 9000 people will be tested under the programme and the government is hoping the results will assist in understanding the spread of the virus amongst school staff.

In the statement Mr Gething wrote that antibody testing will be repeated following the end of term with an additional sample group consisting of the broader school community.

Retesting of the original group will also take place to provide information about both the duration of the infection for individuals that previously tested positive and the rate of the spread of Covid-19 in individuals that previously tested negative.

Official figures up to May 31 report that a total of 24 education workers have tested positive for the virus out of the 440 tests carried out.

Five more deaths from coronavirus have been reported by Public Health Wales.  The total  number of deaths now stands at 1,502.

There were 46 new cases reported over the last 24 hours taking the overall total for confirmed infections in Wales to 15,577. Yesterday 3,246 tests for the virus were carried out.
