Businesses in Stoke-on-Trent that have been instructed to close by Government can now apply for a Local Restrictions Support Grant through Stoke-on-Trent City Council.

We have been allocated £4,192,488 to award to businesses such as hospitality, leisure, non-essential retail and personal care.

This is a further boost for businesses across the city when we know they need it the most. Payments will be made on a 28-day cycle for as long as these restrictions are in place.

Businesses that have chosen to close but were not required to will not be eligible for this grant. In addition, where a business is in administration, are insolvent or where a striking off notice has been made are not eligible under this scheme.
