The support grants are available to businesses forced to close temporarily due to the lockdown, and applications can be made on the council’s website.
The scheme, which is funded by Welsh Government, has seen more than 52,000 businesses across Wales receive financial help, with £640m paid out in total.
Hefin David, Caerphilly’s Member of the Senedd, said: “I have been working very closely with the local authority in order to support local homegrown businesses in these difficult times.
“I have to praise the positive way in which the business community has worked with me and for the leadership shown by the local authority to process the vast amount of applications they have to date.”
Cllr Sean Morgan, deputy leader of the council, said: “Our local businesses have benefited to the tune of nearly £30m through their hard work and engagement with us.
“We need to ensure we reach every business possible, so we will continue to reach out to support all eligible businesses in these unprecedented times.”
Support us with £3 a month membership and go ad-free. For the last ten years, Caerphilly Observer has provided an award-winning, balanced, and independent news service to the people of Caerphilly County Borough.
However, running a professional news service comes at a financial cost. Caerphilly Observer is predominantly funded through advertising and while this has supported us in the past, the future economic outlook in light of the coronavirus outbreak looks bleak.
We believe the public should be informed about their community, coherently and with context. We also believe that public interest journalism should not be put behind a paywall.
We are asking readers for their support to help us develop and grow our service.
Our membership costs just £3 a month and in return, you can use our website without adverts.
