Support Grants for Pubs via Local Authorities

You can now apply for grants to help with the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on your business via your Local Authority.

Your local council will process your grant application. If you want an update on its progress you should contact them.

You can apply if you are:

  • a small business in receipt of the Small Business Bonus Scheme
  • in receipt of Rural Relief
  • a hospitality, leisure or retail business
  • eligible for the small business bonus scheme but in receipt of Nursery Relief, Disabled Relief, Business Growth Accelerator Relief or Fresh Start

From 5 May 2020, small business rate payers will be eligible for a 100% grant on their first property plus a 75% grant on all subsequent properties.

Councils will aim to make payment within 10 working days from receipt of a fully completed application.

You need to apply directly through your Local Authority:
