The Government is closing current grant schemes which cover Tier 2, 3, 4 and national restrictions periods up to 15 February. The national lockdown period 16 February – 31 March will be open for applications until Friday 30 April.

Additional Restrictions Grants: open for more businesses

An even wider range of business owners can now apply for Additional Restrictions Grants (ARG) as the fund opens for a third time to include start-ups who had begun operating within six months before the March 2020 lockdown. Other small businesses or sole traders are still eligible too and you could access £2,500 if you have been impacted by Covid-19 and been unable to secure other grants.

Check your eligibility and apply online by 5pm on Friday 9 April. You can find out more here:
