The Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) supports businesses that have been required to close due to temporary COVID-19 local lock-down restrictions imposed by the government.
Your business may be eligible if it:
- Occupies property on which it pays business rates
- Is in a local lock-down area and has been required to close because of the formal publication of local restrictions guidance that resulted in a first full day of closure on or after 9 September. This funding is not retrospective
- Has been required to close for at least 3 weeks because of the lock-down
- Has been unable to provide its usual in-person customer service from its premises
If your business is eligible and has a property with a rateable value of less than £51,000, you will receive a cash grant of £1,000 for each 3-week period your business is closed.
If your business is eligible and has a property with a rateable value of £51,000 or above, you will receive a cash grant of £1,500 for each 3-week period your business is closed.
The grant will be extended to cover each additional 3-week period, so if your business is closed for 6 weeks it will receive £2,000 or £3,000, depending on the rateable value of the property.
Grants will be based on the rateable value of the property on the first full day of local lock-down restrictions.
