Wiltshire Council is urging eligible businesses in the county to apply for a Restart Grant before the deadline on the 30 June.

Many businesses have been affected by the Government's decision to extend the date of reopening for all businesses until 19 July, and Restart Grants are still available for eligible rate-paying businesses in the non-essential retail and hospitality sectors. They are worth up to £8,000 for non-essential retail businesses, and up to £18,000 for hospitality businesses.

Cllr Richard Clewer, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said: "We know many Wiltshire businesses have been affected by the Government's decision to extend the reopening date until 19 July and we are doing all we can to support them.

"We have awarded more than £23m in Restart Grants to Wiltshire businesses since April, and have paid more than £170m to businesses in our county during the pandemic.

"However, Restart Grant funding is still available for a limited time, so I'd urge any non-essential retail businesses or hospitality businesses, including personal care, pubs, leisure and hotels, that haven't yet claimed a Restart Grant, to apply now so officers can process the funding they're entitled to.

"Applications must be received by 30 June, and this is businesses' last chance to apply, so please get your applications in as soon as you can."

The council is not currently accepting applications for any grants other than Restart Grants, so this only applies to non-essential retail and hospitality businesses. To find out more about grants, to apply, and to sign up for the Wiltshire Council business newsletter for up-to-date information, businesses should visit Coronavirus business support grants.
