Covid 19 Business Grants

LRSG (Closed) financial assistance scheme.  Payments are currently being made covering the period 16th February 2021 to 31st March 2021.   They may be marked as expenditure, depending upon the device in which you access your account.  

Government has provided funding to assist businesses during the current restrictions currently up to 31st March 2021.  The application form Covid 19 Business Grants is for any business applying for the Local Restrictions Support Grant - Addendum (LRSG) for this period and for the Additional Restrictions Grant (One Off) for 5th January to 15th February.

I have already applied for a grant before - do I need to apply again?

If you received a grant payment under the previous scheme (called LRSG (Closed)) for the January 2021 "lockdown" restrictions you do not need to apply again. We will use your details to process further eligible applications.

Information regarding each grant can be found on the Grant Policy Pages.
