Restart Grant

The Restart Grant scheme is available from 1st April 2021 to support businesses that are still facing disruption to reopen safely as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Your business must be in the rating list and trading as at 1st April 2021.

An application is required and eligible businesses will be paid:

  • a one-off grant of up to £6,000 in the non-essential retail sector

If you do not qualify for the Restart Grant, please be aware that the Council is currently developing a discretionary grant.  Please send an e-mail to discretionarygrant@northnorthants.gov.uk to express your interest and we will be in touch once the discretionary scheme is available.
