We are currently awaiting further guidance on the new Covid-19 business grants announced by the Government yesterday and will update our website as soon as we have more information.
The key thing that businesses can do at this stage is to apply for the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG), which has been available since the lockdown in November, if they haven’t already.
There is no need to apply if your business has already received this grant, as all subsequent additional support payments will be calculated automatically, and appropriate Tier 2 and Tier 4 grants will be paid based on your successful LRSG application.
There is also a further scheme available, the Additional Restrictions Grant, for those businesses who may fall outside the eligibility of the LRSG scheme, all details can be found here.
If you have any further questions relating to business grants and support, please email COVID19BusinessGrants@eastsuffolk.gov.uk
