Local restrictions support grants

Expected payment dates

Please note that the timelines below above are a guide to when you can expect to receive payment of a grant if you are eligible.

In some circumstances, this will be later for individual applicants if we require further information or additional pre-payment checks are required.

Grant payment amounts



The local restrictions support grants are only available to business rates account holders. If you are not a business rates account holder you may be eligible for the additional restrictions grant.

You can’t receive funding for any of the above grants if:

  • you have already received grant payments that equal the maximum levels of State Aid permitted under the de minimis and the Covid 19 Temporary State Aid Framework. Grant payments count towards the total de minimis State Aid
  • you’re allowed to get over a 3-year period which is 200,000 euros. If you have reached that threshold, you may still be eligible for funding under the Covid-19 Temporary Framework. The limit for the Temporary Framework is €800,000
  • your business was an undertaking in difficulty (within the meaning of Article 2 (18) of the General Block Exemption Regulation) on the 31 December 2019
  • your business is in administration, insolvent, or is subject to a striking off notice
  • you are not a London Borough of Hackney business rates account holder

If you have applied for Grants 1-7 already then you do not need to complete an application form or consent form as you will be assessed for grants 8 and 9 automatically. If you have not already applied for any previous grants then you will need to complete the application form.
