The Government has announced that further Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) is to be made available to cover a 44 day period starting from 16 February to 31 March 2021.

This grant is only for businesses that have a rateable value and are legally required to close because of the formal publication of lockdown regulations under Public Health legislation.
 
If you have already received the Covid-19 Business Support Grants: Tier 4, National Lockdown 5 January – 15 February 2021 and Closed Business Lockdown Payment Grants, we need you to confirm that you are still eligible for the grant.
 
If your details have changed, or your business circumstances have changed (for example, your business has permanently closed, has gone into administration, become insolvent or had a striking-off notice, or the business has reached subsidy limits), please email covid19businessgrants@eastcambs.gov.uk
