The Government has issued guidance for local authorities setting out details of the Small Business Grants Fund (SBGF) and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund (RHLGF).

This guidance sets out details and eligibility criteria for:

  • the Small Business Grants Fund (SBGF)
  • the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund (RHLGF)

It informs local authorities about the operation and delivery of the 2 funding schemes.

The guidance applies to England only.

We are now seeing Councils paying the Grants to businesses. If you have not been contacted by your local council go on their website and Register for Grant support. Typically, you will be asked which Grant you are applying for and your business details.
