The Restart Grant scheme supports businesses in reopening safely as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Grants are available from 1 April 2021.
To be eligible, your business must be in the non-essential retail sector and you may be entitled to a one-off cash grant of up to £6,000 from your local borough.
Eligible businesses in the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym sectors may be entitled to a one-off cash grant of up to £18,000 from their local borough.
Your business must be:
- based in England
- business rate-payer
- in the non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care or gym sectors
- opening ‘shop’ and trading as of 1 April 2021
Your council should have contacted you about the one-off grant payment, but if you believe you are eligible but have not heard form them, then please do not hesitate to give them a call.
