Small Business Grants Fund

Eligible businesses that are in receipt of the Small Business Rates Relief are entitled to a grant payment of £10,000.

Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund

Businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors that occupy premises with a rateable value of less than £51,000 are eligible for a grant. There are two levels of grant payments available:

  • £10,000 for properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or less.
