Business grants during Covid-19

From the 5 November 2020 to the 2 December 2020 national restrictions have been imposed by government on all local authority areas in England in response to the threat posed by coronavirus.

To support businesses during this period grant schemes are available, including the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) (Closed) Addendum,  for businesses that pay business rates and have been told by government that they must close under national restrictions.
