Coronavirus (COVID-19) Business Support Grants

National restrictions - update 14 January 2021

On the 13 January 2021 the government released the guidance for the one-off National Closed Business Lockdown Payment and confirmation of the Local Restriction Support Grant Closed Addendum scheme for business forced to close due to national restrictions which came into force on the 5 January 2021.

Businesses that are eligible are those that have been mandated to close by Government and include non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality businesses.

If you received a Local Restriction Support Grant during the November national lockdown, or are currently receiving a Local Restriction Support Grant for open or closed businesses, there will be no need to re-apply and automatic awards will be made. We are expecting to make the automatic awards and issue a confirmation email to all those businesses by the 15 January 2021.
