Apply for New Round of Business Grants - COVID-19
Manor Royal Businesses that have had to close due to the new lockdown can now apply for the new wave of government grants.
The new support is called ‘Local Restriction Support Grant (Closed) Addendum: 5 January onwards' (LRSG) and 'Closed Businesses Lockdown Payment' (CBLP).
The grants cover the six-week period of lockdown from 5 January until 15 February.
Both grants are based on rateable value. The rate of payment for eligible businesses is:
For properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under, grants are £2,001 (LRSG) and £4,000 (CBLP) - a total of £6,001
For properties with a rateable value of between £15,001 and £50,999, grants are £3,000 (LRSG) and £6,000 (CBLP) - a total of £9,000
For properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or over, grants are £4,500 (LRSG) and £9,000 (CBLP) - a total of £13,500
Crawley Borough Council is administering and distributing these grants on behalf of the government.
