Restart Grant scheme available for businesses occupying commercial premises and who receive a non-domestic rates bill

Businesses in Nuneaton and Bedworth hit by the Covid-19 pandemic can now apply for a Restart Grant.

The Restart Grant scheme is for businesses who occupy commercial premises and who receive a non-domestic rates bill.

It is a one-off grant payment. It will replace all existing grants apart from the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG).

The grant will support non-essential retail premises with one-off grants of up to £6,000 and hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym or sport business premises with one-off grants of up to £18,000. The value of the grant depends on the rateable value of the premises.

For full details of Restart Grants go to:

Subject to subsidy allowance conditions, previously referred to as State Aid, businesses will be entitled to receive a grant for each eligible property.

Some businesses may receive more than one grant where they have more than one eligible property.

Businesses that have already received grant payments that equal the maximum permitted subsidy allowances will not be eligible to receive funding. Please see further detail regarding subsidy allowances here.

Businesses that are in administration, insolvent or where a striking-off notice has been made, are not eligible for funding under this scheme.

The online application form is available on our website and before you start your application and to avoid any possible delays to making grant payments, there is certain information required on the application. This is:
