Last chance for businesses to apply for restart grant


BUSINESSES that have been affected by the pandemic are reminded that applications for the restart grant close on 30 June 2021.

This one-off grant is available to non-essential retail businesses and hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses. To be eligible the business must have been the ratepayer at 1 April 2021.

Grants have already been paid to businesses that were receiving on-going lockdown grant payments and to qualifying new businesses that have applied.

Any new applications from eligible businesses that have not already received a grant must be made by 30 June 2021.

Leicester City Mayor Peter Soulsby said: “Lockdown restrictions have affected businesses across the city, and these grants can provide much-needed financial support.

“I’d urge any businesses that has not yet received a restart grant to check whether they are eligible and make sure they claim the help to which they are entitled.”
