The Local Government Board (JGL) of Benidorm has approved to extend the application period to access the second call for the 'Parenthesis Aid' for professionals and companies with up to 10 workers, until  the 27th September , according to the councilor of Employment, Mónica Gómez. 

The amount of these grants, co-financed by the City Council, the Alicante Provincial Council and the Generalitat Valenciana, amounts to €2,000 euros, to which is added another €200 euros 'extra' for each employee who is registered on the 31st December.

So far, the City Council has already approved four remittances of aid from this second call, with which the amount granted rises above €3.5 million euros to 1,558 companies and professionals in the city from numerous sectors affected by the pandemic .

Gómez has highlighted that "from the Benidorm City Council we work so that these 'Parenthesis Aids' reach the largest possible number of professionals and companies", although he has specified that the bases of the call, prepared by the Generalitat Valenciana, "leave out a an important part of the productive fabric of Benidorm that, fundamentally due to having a staff of more than 10 workers, cannot attend this call ”. 

Among the measures promoted to favor access to these grants, the City Council has launched two calls, expanding the beneficiary sectors and activities and extending the application deadlines to give companies and the self-employed a longer period ”. In fact, "the application period is open until 11:59 p.m. on 27th September ". The request can be made through the Electronic Office, ;

At the same Headquarters, the bases of this second call are also available and the list of activities and sectors that can benefit from this aid, which are all the CNAEs included by the Consell in the list of sectors affected by the pandemic. 

The councilor recalled that in addition to launching a second phase of 'Parenthesis Aid', "our endeavor is not to leave anyone on the road and that is why from the City Council we have promoted 100% municipal aid lines, such as those in the accommodation sector, for to reach the companies that until now have been excluded from the calls made by the competent administrations ”.
