BENIDORM town hall has added four new Covid-hit sectors to those eligible for the Generalitat’s Parentesis grants.

The deadline for the next round of official aid for the self-employed and small firms has also been extended to August 2, announced Employment and Local Development councillor Monica Gomez.

Beer-manufacture, sales of light vehicles and motor vehicles other than automobiles, broadcasting and television transmissions are now included, Gomez explained.


Applications can be made until August 2 to the website which also details all the categories eligible for assistance from the €3.2 million Parentesis fund financed by the Generalitat, the Diputacion provincial council and Benidorm town hall.

In addition to grants of up to €2,000 for the self-employed or owners of small businesses, an extra €200 is available for each employee on the payroll since December 31, 2020.

The town hall expects to allocate €445,000 amongst a further 200 business-owners and self-employed, having already paid out just over €2 million during the first round of grants.
