COVID-19 Business Grants

In response to the Coronavirus, COVID-19 outbreak, the Government announced there would be support for small businesses, and businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors. This support will take the form of two grant funding schemes, the Small Business Grant Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund.

The Small Business Grant Fund

  • A £10,000 grant will be paid by us to all businesses which are in receipt of Small Business Rates Relief in the South Northamptonshire area.

The Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund

  • A grant will be paid by us to all businesses which are in receipt of the Enhanced Retail Discount for 2020/21 and have a rateable value of up to £51,000,  which are not covered by the Small Business Grant Fund.
  • For Retail, Hospitality and Leisure business properties which have a rateable value up to £15,000 will receive a grant of £10,000 and Retail Leisure and Hospitality business properties with a rateable value of up to £51,000 will receive a grant of £25,000.

Businesses will be eligible for a grant on more than one property, providing it meets the criteria. You must complete a separate form for each property that is eligible for a grant.
