Apply now: new coronavirus business grants launched
Small and micro businesses and the self-employed in Hackney can apply for a one-off payment of up to £9,000 today after a new grant to support those affected by coronavirus was launched by Hackney Council.
The second round of the Additional Restrictions Grant, a discretionary grant scheme, will support small businesses who either had to legally close from December onwards due to the tier and national lockdown restrictions and who don’t have a business rates account, or businesses not legally required to close but who have been severely affected by the restrictions.
The first round of the Additional Restrictions Grant, launched by Hackney Council in December 2020, received almost 800 applications, with £1 million in grants due to be awarded to successful applicants by the end of February.
