Grants to support reopening local businesses

Two new grant schemes have opened for applications by Richmondshire businesses today (April 26).

The ‘Restart’ grants will help local businesses in the non-essential retail, hospitality, leisure, personal care and accommodation sectors. They will provide a one-off sum to support the costs of reopening safely as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

The grants, which are being administered by the District Council on behalf of the Government, have two sets of eligibility criteria:

The application process is available on our Restart grants page - with the amount paid based on the rateable value of the property.  

For businesses that are not business ratepayers, and therefore not eligible for this Restart grant, there is an Additional Restrictions Grant scheme. Details on how to apply for this will be released later this week.
