Grants available across North Kent for businesses facing restrictions because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Local Restrictions Support Grant (for Closed Businesses) and Additional Restrictions Grant (Discretionary)

  • Based on the rateable value of property
  • Grants between £1,334 & £3,000
  • Businesses that are eligible are those that have been mandated to close by Government and include non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities, and hospitality businesses
  • Local Authorities are also operating discretionary grant schemes to help those businesses which – while not legally forced to close – are nonetheless severely impacted by the restrictions put in place to control the spread of Covid-19 (may not be dependent on occupying a rateable property).
  • All grants are claimed online via the Local Authorities' websites
