Latest coronavirus update from the Welsh Government - dated yesterday - is:
- Businesses across Wales can now find out if they can apply for funding from the third phase of the Economic Resilience Fund (ERF).
- Economy Minister Ken Skates announced the new phase of the fund last week which will see an additional £140 million being made available to businesses.
- The eligibility checker will enable businesses to see if they can access the £80 million tranche of the fund which will support firms with projects that can help them transition to the economy of tomorrow. It will require co-investment from companies and a clear plan about how they will adjust to the post-covid economy.
