Business Grants

PAGE LAST UPDATED: June 14  2021

Government is continually updating grant schemes to support businesses required to close or that have been severely affected due to Covid-19.

 

These programmes are being administered locally by InvestSK on behalf of South Kesteven District Council and this page will be updated with the latest information.

GRANT SUPPORT

We’re currently administering the following grant support schemes:

RESTART GRANT

 

To support the recovery of our economy, and as national trading restrictions are relaxed, the Chancellor has announced the one-off ‘Restart Grant’ payment.

This grant replaces the Local Restrictions Support Grants from April 2021 onwards (for eligible businesses).

 

If your business is rated, mandated to close and received Government support grants since November 2020 then you may be eligible for the Restart Grant.

If you believe you should have received a payment and have not – please email us  business@investsk.co.uk

 

If your business is rated but you believe you’re eligible for the Restart Grant please read through the guidance before making contact. You will be required to complete an application form which will be available by emailing business@investsk.co.uk

Restart Grant Closes June 30th 2021
