Additional Restrictions Grant

A one-off funding has been allocated to councils to use their discretion to support businesses that have been forced to close or are severely impacted by national restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) supports businesses that are not covered by other grant schemes or where additional funding is needed.

We are administering the ARG in three phases:

  • Phase One - grants to businesses to cover the period from 2 December (when London returned to Tier 2 restrictions) and up to 26 February 2021.
  • Phase Two - grants to businesses during the period January 2021 to May 2021.
  • Phase Three - we will review the grants administered during phase one and two, after which we may offer wider business support up to March 2022 to assist businesses to recover and adapt to the impact of COVID-19.

Phase one is now closed. Phase two closes on 28 May 2021.

Information on the criteria, priorities and application processes for phase two is detailed below.

We have not determined our criteria for phase three yet. We will communicate the latest news and ARG information in our business enewsletter and on this page of the website. Sign up for our business enewsletter.
