Businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors can now access one-off business support grants of up to £9,000 to help them survive the national lockdown in England.

The new grants will be available to businesses that have been forced to close their doors as a result of the pandemic, and the payments will be based on the rateable value of the premises.

• £4,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or under
• £6,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000
• £9,000 for businesses with a rateable value over £51,000

The help is in addition to business rates relief and the furlough scheme, which has been extended until the end of April.

How to apply for business funding

Find out more about the government’s financial support schemes and use their business support finder tool to see what support you may be eligible for.

Don’t forget, grassroots clubs, groups and organisations who have been impacted by Covid-19 restrictions can also still apply to Sport England’s £16.5 million Return to Play Fund to help sustain them through the pandemic.
