Additional Restrictions Grant (Open) – Apply via your local authority

Some Local Authorities in Greater Lincolnshire have opened their applications for the Additional Restrictions Grant (Open). 

This grant supports businesses that were not forced to close by law during the November National Lockdown (5th November to 2nd December 2020).

Open businesses that are applying for ARG funding will be required to make a statement that confirms their eligibility. In addition, businesses that are not required to close will need to provide evidence that they were negatively affected by the lockdown. This will be in the form of banks statements and other supporting evidence to show year on year losses e.g. November 2020 lockdown verses November 2019, fixed costs, rental payments.

In order to be eligible for funding from the Additional Restrictions Grant Fund, businesses must not be eligible for funding from any other central government scheme for the November lockdown period.

Businesses who have applied for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme or the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) are eligible to apply for this grant funding.

Your business must have been trading on 4th November 2020.

Companies that are in administration, are insolvent or where a striking-off notice has been made are not eligible for funding under this scheme.

We have not been given specific application dates for all Local Authorities, please check the website of your local authority below for more details and how to apply.
