Additional Restrictions Grant
Status: Coming soon

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) provides local councils with grant funding to support closed businesses that are not registered for business rates as well as businesses that do not have to close but which are severely impacted by the new national restrictions.

We have received Government guidance on the eligibility criteria of this scheme and are working to put a process in place to enable the grants to be paid. Please be aware that it could take several weeks until eligible businesses receive any grant funds.

A new edition of the Business Brief will be released once this scheme goes live.
