Covid-19: New grants for businesses affected by local lockdowns
Released 09 September 2020
Businesses in England that are required to shut because of local coronavirus-related interventions will be able to claim up to £1,500 per property every three weeks.
To be eligible for the grant, a business must have been required to close due to local Covid-19 restrictions. The largest businesses will receive £1,500 every three weeks they are required to close. Smaller businesses will receive £1,000.
Payments are triggered by a national decision to close businesses in a high incidence area. Each payment will be made for a three week lockdown period. Each new three week lockdown period triggers an additional payment.
