These schemes, all delivered through local authorities, are to support local businesses during national lockdown and periods of local restrictions.

Grants to support businesses across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Grant funding is available to businesses directly impacted by the Covid-19 restrictions through the six District Councils across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. 

Two of the funds, the LRSG (Closed) Addendum and the Additional Restrictions Grant, are available to support businesses throughout this period of national restrictions.


Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Addendum grant

Businesses required to close due to national lockdown restrictions will receive grants of up to £3,000 per 28-day period under the LRSG (Closed) Addendum, an extension of the LRSG (Closed) scheme.


Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG)

The Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) provides additional funding for local authorities subject to national lockdown or Tier 3 restrictions, to support businesses that have had their trade affected by the restrictions.

This includes:

  • closed businesses that don’t pay business rates
  • businesses that have not been required to close, but are still severely impacted

Each local authority has the discretion to establish business grant schemes or other business support as best fits their area.


How to apply

You can apply via for the LRSG (Closed) Addendum or the Additional Restrictions Grant your district council’s website using the links below.

Due to high demand and limited funding, it will not be possible to fund all applications and therefore the CPCA nor your District Council cannot guarantee any application made will be successful.
