Small Business Grant Fund and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund

The guidance sets out the criteria which central government considers for this purpose to be eligible for the Small Business Grant Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund. This does not replace existing guidance.

This support will take the form of two grant funding schemes, the Small Business Grant Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund.

Local Authorities that will be responsible for making payments to businesses and which will receive funding from Government are business rate billing authorities in England.

How much funding will be provided to businesses?

  • It also details the Retail Hospitality and Leisure Grant (RHLG, businesses in England that would have been in receipt of the Expanded Retail Discount (which covers retail, hospitality and leisure) on 11 March with a rateable value of less than £51,000 will be eligible for the following cash grants per property.
