Local restrictions support grants for closed businesses

We are no longer accepting new applications for this grant.

This grant was available to all businesses that were required to close while Tier 3 restrictions were in force in Merton from 16 to 19 December 2020. Applications closed on 31 March 2021 but we hope to pay these grants without another application.

It also applied to those ‘wet-led’ pubs that were forced to close in Tier 2. Applications closed 28 February 2021

The grant amounts for each 14-day qualifying restriction period are as follows. A pro-rata amount will be awarded for the period from 16 to 19 December 2020.

  • £15,000 or less, you will receive a one-off grant of £667
  • over £15,000 but less than £51,000, you will receive a one-off grant of £1,000
