Grant Funding

For businesses with physical premises, there will be cash grants available if the business is legally required to close due to a local lockdown.

  • The Government is increasing the cash grants available to businesses in England which are required to shut their premises down for at least 2 weeks during local lockdowns. These grants will be linked to the rateable values of business premises, with up to £3,000 per month payable every two weeks, compared to the up to £1,500 every three weeks which was available previously.
  • Small businesses with a rateable value of or below £15,000 can now claim £1,300 per month; medium sized businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000 can claim £2,000 per month; and larger businesses can claim £3,000.
  • Grants can be applied for via your local council.
