New Lockdown Grant Schemes now open to applications

Applications for the mew measures to support businesses during lockdown are now open.
For retail, hospitality and leisure businesses, a one-off top-up grant worth up to £9,000 per property is available to help businesses through to the Spring which is offered in addition to the Local Restriction Support Grant (LRSG) for Closed businesses. A new Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) discretionary scheme has also opened.

Those businesses who have not been contacted or did not receive the payment in November but can answer yes to the following questions

  • Are you registered for business rates within Derby City?
  • Has your business got a rateable value?
  • Has your business been forced to close?

are invited to apply here for the LRSG for Closed Businesses and the one-off grant

Similarly, those businesses who received a payment through the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) discretionary scheme during the November lockdown, should by now have received confirmation from the Council that they have been automatically included in the new scheme and therefore do not need to apply again.

The ARG scheme is open to businesses that are not eligible for the LRSG scheme but have still been severely impacted by the new national lockdown. Those businesses who have not been contacted or did not receive the payment in November but believe they are eligible for support can apply here for the ARG scheme.

Full details of all the schemes are available on the Business Financial Support pages of the Derby City Council website.
