Small Business Grant Funding

The government will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to around 700,000 small businesses currently eligible for SBRR or Rural Rate Relief to help meet ongoing business costs.

If your business is eligible for SBRR or rural rate relief, you will be contacted by your local authority – you do not need to apply.

Funding for the scheme will be provided to our local authorities by government in early April and further information will be available shortly.
