1. Discretionary Business Grant Scheme
Who this grant is for
After a recent Government announcement for help aimed at small and micro businesses, we've launched our Discretionary Business Grant Scheme.
This scheme is aimed at businesses that were not eligible for the Small Business Grant Fund or the Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Fund.
The Discretionary Business Grant Scheme is aimed at:
small and micro businesses
businesses with relatively high ongoing fixed property-related costs
businesses which can demonstrate that they have suffered a significant fall in income due to the COVID-19 crisis
businesses which occupy property, or part of a property, with a rateable value or annual rent or annual mortgage payments below £51,000
Please see our Discretionary Business Grant FAQ’s for the definition of small or micro business.
About these grants
Grants available are for £25,000, £10,000, £5,000, £2,500 and £1,000.
The level of grant given to eligible businesses will be determined by how significantly the business has been affected by Covid-19.
We will calculate the appropriate level of funding for each business based on financial and any other supporting information supplied with your application.
