East Devon Business Grants find out more about the schemes available

Restart Grants are now available for businesses as we re-open following lockdown. Please apply using the link in the table below.

The new Restart Grant is a sector based grant and is different from the previous LRSG grants. We will not be using access codes so there is no reason to wait to apply. Letters will be sent to make businesses aware of the scheme but these are not needed in order to apply.

Businesses which have been legally required to close during the Coronavirus national and local restrictions can still apply for LRSG (closed) addendum 16.02.21 to 31.03.21 grants. ARG grants are also still available for those who are unable to claim the LRSG grant. Please ensure that if you are eligible and you have not yet claimed one of the grants you complete the claim form below.

The current ARG grants will be closing on 23.4.21 and the remaining LRSG grant will be closing on the 31.05.21

At this busy time we would ask you to refrain from calling to allow us to process claims. If you do need to contact us please email:
