    Business support grants

    Central Government announced that there is funding available to support businesses that have been affected by either local or national restrictions put in place to manage coronavirus. Support is subject to eligibility criteria and is available for both open and closed businesses via different grants from 5 August 2020 which all come under the same framework - Local Restrictions Support Grant.

    Information about the support and the application form went live on Salford City Council’s website and social media channels on Thursday 12 November 2020.

    Businesses only need to apply for the grant once and the council will determine their eligibility under the different variations of the Local Restrictions Support Grant as appropriate.

    There are four grants depending on timing of closure but the current situation of a national lockdown from Thursday 5 November means that the LRSG (Closed) Addendum scheme supersedes all other schemes.
