At the beginning of April, the government launched the new £5 billion Restart Grants scheme to be administered by local authorities.
Businesses in England in the non-essential retail sector will be eligible for one-off grants of up to £6,000, while businesses in the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym sectors, which are reopening later, will be eligible for one-off grants of up to £18,000.

BCP Council are aiming to get approximately £23million in Restart Grants out to our businesses shortly after Easter. These funds will support businesses that are predominantly reliant on delivering in-person services for the general public from their business premises and will be paid directly to businesses that have already been awarded a Local Restrictions Support Grant for the period from 16 February to 31 March.
Depending on rateable value, these awards will vary from £2,667 to £6,000 for non-essential retail businesses and from £8,000 to £18,000 for businesses in the hospitality, leisure, accommodation, personal care and gyms and sport sectors where the criteria is met.
Full details of the Restart Grant scheme and eligibility criteria will be available on the Council’s website by 1 April.
An application form for new applicants will also be made available once initial grants have been made.
