Closed business grant
Businesses who have already applied for the tier scheme and received payment for January 2021 will automatically get these payments without the need to reapply.
These funds will be released once North Lincolnshire Council has received funding from the Government. This may take seven to ten working days, so please do not contact your dedicated account handler until Monday 8 March 2021.
The amount businesses will receive is dependent on rateable value. Payments will be made for a 44 day period from 16 February 2021 to 31 March 2021 and are as follows:
- £2,096 for businesses with a rateable value under £15,000
- £3,143 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000
- £4,714 for properties with a rateable value over £51,000
If you have not already applied for the January lockdown and/or tier payment scheme, you can make an application on the Invest In North Lincolnshire Website.
For the January 2021 lockdown the deadline for applications is 31 March 2021 with last payment being made by 30 April 2021.
For the next lockdown extension (21 February to 21 March) the deadline for applications is 31 May 2021 – with payments needing to be made by 30 June 2021.
For the Closed Business Lockdown Payment (Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Top Up Grant) the deadline is 31 March 2021 – with final payments on 30 April 2021.
If you are a new applicant to this scheme, we will contact you as soon as possible, but please note we are dealing with a high volume of applications.
There will be a further payment of the discretionary grant to those businesses who applied during previous application windows. The amount is still to be confirmed, and once we have the exact amounts with payment dates, we will update our website accordingly.
We will not be opening the grant for new applicants.
Please do not contact your dedicated account handler until we have confirmed the amount of grant funding that will be received.
