East Devon Business Grants find out more about the schemes available

Grants are available for businesses which have been legally required to close OR financially impacted during the Coronavirus national and local restrictions. 

Businesses which received an LRSG grant for the national restrictions have received an access code for each period, so they can complete a much shorter form. If you have not received an access code you can still claim but will need to complete the full form. In addition, there is a one-off top up grant (called CBLP) for business in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors. 

Please make sure you apply for the each time period. Check back to this page regularly or sign up for the East Devon business update to find out when grants are live. 

The business rates team is not administering the Additional Restriction Grants. If you have a question about the Additional Restrictions Grant please email arg@eastdevon.gov.uk
