Whilst Leeds City Council must follow government guidelines in the design and implementation of the discretionary scheme the detail will be determined locally.
The scheme will amount to 5% of the total value of grants paid out by Leeds City Council as part of the original COVID-19 business grant funds scheme which was nationally defined. At the 11 May that would amount to £7 m for Leeds City Council to distribute.
The decision will be to approve the scope of the discretionary scheme as designed for Leeds City Council.
