4. Grants for businesses affected by the current national restrictions
East Devon businesses which have been required to legally close according to Government instruction during the current restrictions, can apply for a Local Restrictions Support Grant. These include businesses providing non-essential retail; personal care facilities; hospitality venues and leisure/entertainment.
We have received more than 1200 applications. So far, we have processed more than 800 and paid out more than £1.1m. Please bear with us as we continue to verify and process the high number of applications.
For other East Devon businesses which have been affected by the current national restrictions, an Additional Restrictions Grant was approved by East Devon District Council’s Cabinet this week. Businesses cannot claim both grants. We expect this grant to go live in December, so please do not contact us about it. Please subscribe to East Devon business news to receive information on this as soon as it becomes available.
