COVID-19 – Additional Restrictions Grant (discretionary scheme)
This grant is only available whilst Uttlesford District Council’s area is subject to national and localised restrictions where businesses are mandated to close. This will cover COVID restriction affected businesses in Alert Tiers 2, 3 and 4.
These businesses will take priority on funding, but applications are invited from other businesses who satisfy the scheme criteria and have either been forced to close or have been severely affected by Tier 2, 3 & 4 local restrictions or the widespread national lockdown.
