Duplicate applications will not be processed. Please note that businesses in reciept of the Additional Restrictions Grant are not eligible for these top up grants.

Additional Restrictions Grant

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) is a discretionary grant which will offer a lifeline to businesses which are struggling to survive nationally imposed restrictions and resulting in loss of trade and income due to the Covid-19 crisis.
The scheme prioritises the following:

- Hull businesses that occupy business premises, (with fixed premises costs) and have been required to close due to nationally imposed restrictions, but do not have a business rates account (and are therefore ineligible for Local Restrictions Support Grant – closed).
- Hull businesses, with or without rateable premises, which are severely negatively impacted by national and local (very high) restrictions, but which may not be required to close. We will prioritise businesses which support/supply the leisure and hospitality sectors and businesses in the events sector.
Please note - If your business is currently able to access the Local Restrictions Support Grant due to being required to close by Government, then you are ineligible for this scheme.

 

Businesses who have already applied for and are eligible for the Additional Restrictions Grant should not reapply. Duplicate applications will not be processed.

Business who have not yet applied for the Additional Restrictions Grant can find eligibility criteria and the application form here.
