Business support grants

Current Coronavirus business grant schemes

Restart Grants (1 April 2021 onwards)

The Restart Grant was announced in the 2021 Budget. It is a one-off business grant available to non-essential retail businesses (Strand One), and hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym or sport business premises (Strand Two).

The Restart Grant scheme is for businesses in the business ratings list only.

Application process

Apply online for a Coronavirus restart grant.

Due to the significant changes in the new Restart Grant guidance provided to us by Government, it is necessary for us to run a new online grant application process for the Restart Grant scheme.

We will use the email contacts we hold from previous grant applications to send out an email.

Additional Restrictions Grant

There has previously been two rounds of funding available through the Additional Restrictions Grant in Eden; Round one in November 2020 and round two covering January to 31 March 2021. More details can be found about these further down this webpage. All applications for this scheme are currently closed and we do not have sufficient funding remaining to open up a new round of applications.

The Government has confirmed a future Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) top-up amount may be available subject to our current allocations being fully spent and other conditions which we have not yet been confirmed to us. 

We have been provided an indicative allocation of £641,477 which is much smaller than the allocation of £1.5million that we have already received. Until we understand the full conditions we need to meet in order to access this funding, we are unable to launch a new scheme. We will update this page with further information once this is received.

Please do not contact us requesting further information about this funding as we will keep this webpage updated with the latest information we have.
