Kildare Sees Low Uptake In Vital Business Grant, With Deadline Looming

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, May 1.

With the application deadline looming, just over a quarter of eligible local businesses have registered for the Increased Cost of Business Grant (ICOB) worth up to €5,000.

Despite government efforts to bolster economic support through the grant, the county has seen just 1,320 out of 4,980 eligible businesses applying for the grant, representing a 26.51% uptake.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, May 1.

The grant, allocated €257 million in Budget 2024, aims to alleviate financial burdens on small and medium enterprises.
