5. Tier 2 Business Grants - LRSG (Open)

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (Open) scheme provides local councils with grant funding to support businesses that were severely impacted by the Tier 2 restrictions (between 2 Dec and 31 Dec). 

Both rated and non-rated businesses (in any sector) can apply for this scheme, including businesses that work from home or on a mobile basis. 

Businesses that were required to close during Tier 2 (wet led pubs for example) are not eligible for this scheme, as they are instead eligible for the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) scheme.

Those businesses who were severely impacted or forced to close during the five days of Tier 3 restrictions will also be issued a grant through this application form, combined with their Tier 2 payment.

A business that has been severely impacted will have to provide evidence of this. Our FAQ document explains what ‘severely impacted’ means and gives examples of how applicants can provide this evidence. 

You cannot claim if:

  • you were forced to close during Tier 2 (wet led pubs for example) 
  • you primarily operate and trade outside of Teignbridge
  • you are using the grant to substitute lost wages or to be used as a wage supplement
  • the business was in administration, insolvent or a striking-off notice had been made on or prior to the 5 November 2020
  • you will exceed the limit for state aid under de minimus and the temporary framework
  • you are applying for a property which is advertised solely online through “home sharing” websites such as Airbnb

Those who applied for an LRSG or ARG for the November 2020 lockdown are welcome to apply for this scheme too.

Every claim will be subject to anti-fraud assessment and account verification. Attempts to fraudulently claim public grant funding will result in funds being recovered and legal action being taken in every instance.
