Further grants will be available soon, including a one off top up grant for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses worth up to £9,000 per property and a £594million discretionary fund to support other impacted businesses.

This follows the Prime Minister’s announcement that these businesses will be closed until at least February half-term to help control the virus. 

The cash will be provided on a per-property basis to support businesses through the latest restrictions. 

The one off top up grants will be granted to closed businesses as follows:

  • £4,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or under
    £6,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000
    £9,000 for businesses with a rateable value over £51,000

The further discretionary funding is being made available for local authorities to support other businesses not eligible for these one off top up grants.

Read further detail on the announcement of this new grant scheme.

East Devon District Council is awaiting the guidance from Government on these grants and will share details and information on how businesses can apply for and receive this support as quickly as possible. Sign up for the East Devon business update to receive the latest grant information.
