COVID-19: Restart Grant Scheme

April Foster

The coronavirus Restart Grant scheme has been put in place to support businesses in reopening safely as COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift.

The Restart Grant Scheme will become available from 1 April 2021, but applications can be submitted in advance.

Eligible businesses in the non-essential retail sector may be entitled to a £6,000 one-off cash grant from their local council.

For businesses in the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym sectors, this amount is £18,000.
Your business may be eligible if it is:
  • based in England
  • rate-paying
  • in the non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care or gym sectors
  • trading on 1 April 2021
