The Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) of up to £3,000 per four-week period is available to all businesses in England that have been required to close due to local and national restrictions.

In order to qualify for this grant, businesses must be part of the business rate system. Therefore, businesses that manage accommodation remotely must be the eligible business rate payer for that hereditament in order to receive a grant through the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) scheme.

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (Open) is a discretionary fund and local authorities are free to determine which businesses to support.

The Devolved Administrations are responsible for the administration of support schemes in Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
