Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) (updated 16 June 2021)



As Step Four of the roadmap out of restrictions has been delayed for up to four weeks, guidance has been updated to account for this, and the spending allocation deadline is now 30 July 2021.

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) provides additional funding for local authorities, subject to national lockdown or Tier 3 restrictions, to support businesses that have had their trade affected by the restrictions.  This includes:

  • closed businesses that don't pay business rates.
  • businesses that have not been required to close, but are still severely impacted.

Each local authority has the discretion to establish business grant schemes or other business support as best fits their area.
