The Councils welcome applications from South Norfolk and Broadland businesses of any size, whether home based or based in business premises, business rated or not rated, self-employed or employing staff.

1. A rated business that did not qualify for Local Restrictions Support Grant payments during national lockdowns or local restrictions
2. A business that has so far been unable to receive any COVID-19 financial support – including businesses with premises which are not business-rated, or without its own business rating
3. A business that employs 10 or more full-time equivalent employees and wishes to request a top-up to a previous Local Restrictions Support Grant award
Any business that needs support is encouraged to get in touch to find out what funding they may be eligible for. Please share with your business networks and fellow business owners.
