Just a short Briefing to follow up on our Briefing of 7 January, in respect of “One-Off” Grants.
We would like to pass on our thanks to the Wimborne BID for providing the following information:
Dorset Council have now released information about Grant funding.
Rate-payers for businesses forced to close can apply for the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) (Closed) Addendum .
If you received a grant for the November lockdown, you will be paid automatically and do not need to re-apply. However, if you were required to close in November but have not claimed this Grant, you will need to apply.
Top-up grant for business rate-payers
The Closed Businesses Lockdown Payment is a top-up to the LRSG (Closed) Addendum. You will be paid automatically if you received that grant in November.
For non-business rate-payers or those whose trade has been affected, we have been advised that this Grant will be available shortly.
Some businesses have received an email to confirm that they are eligible for both the Local Restriction Support Grant (LRSG) Closed Addendum AND the Closed Business Lockdown Payment. Dorset Council have calculated this for you, there is no additional application.
