3. Additional Restrictions Grant

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. 

Businesses forced to close that are registered for business rates are not eligible for this scheme, but can apply for a Local Restrictions Support Grant

We have received Government guidance on the eligibility criteria of this scheme and are working to put measures 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.
