New Grants to help businesses re-open safely

East Suffolk Council is preparing to process the new one-off Restart Grants to help businesses as they look to re-open.

The Restart Grant scheme, announced as part of the Chancellor’s budget, supports businesses in the non-essential retail, hospitality, leisure, personal care, accommodation and gym/sport sectors with a one-off payment to re-open safely as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

The scheme, which is available from 1 April 2021, will support eligible businesses with one-off grants between £2,667 to £18,000.
