Businesses can now apply for lockdown support grants

There's new support grant funding worth up to £3,000 a month per business. Those needing help can apply for one of two grants available.

Local Restrictions Support Grant (for businesses required to close)

This scheme is for businesses which pay rates and have been forced to close due to the national lockdown. This grant is also available to businesses that have closed their main operations, but who are currently offering take-away or click and collect services. A maximum of £3,000 is available depending upon the individual business's rateable value.

Additional Restrictions Grant

This scheme is for business that aren't eligible for the Local Restrictions Support Grant, including those that haven't been temporarily forced to close, but have been severely impacted by the current restrictions, and those that do not pay any business rates. This is a discretionary fund with £2,000 available to support individual businesses. Deadline for applications is 4 December.
