Businesses that have been forced to close due to COVID-19 national restrictions, from Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December, can now apply for the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Addendum through Luton Council.
To qualify for this grant, businesses must have been:
  • open as usual before the restrictions
  • required to close due to new national restrictions imposed by government
  • paying business rates for the premises

How much will businesses receive?
The value of the grant will depend on the Rateable Value (RV) of your business premises, although there is some discretionary funding available to support those not in the business rates system.

Businesses can find and check their business rates valuation with the Valuation Office Agency HERE.
