FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR BUSINESSES

Financial support for other businesses: Additional Restriction Grant

The Additional Restriction Grant (ARG) scheme is designed to provide help to a wide range of businesses severely impacted by the pandemic.

The ARG Scheme is a cash limited grant scheme and the Council will therefore prioritise applications to ensure the grants are directed to those areas most in accord with the Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy’s directions around the principles and purposes of the grant.

The grant can be paid to large or small businesses and is not restricted to businesses which have a rateable value assessment in their name. Separate businesses operating from shared premises can apply for the grant as can those operating a mobile business or the self-employed.

In accordance with revised Government guidance, businesses who have previously received other Covid-19 business grants, for example, a Restart Grant, or, Local Restriction Support Grants, are also encouraged to apply for ARG.

Businesses must be based within Hyndburn and be able to demonstrate they have been severely impacted by the introduction of the local and national lockdown measures.

Payment of grants will only be made to a business bank account that the Council can verify as belonging to the business applying for the grant.
