COVID-19 Local Restrictions Support Grants

The Government has announced a range of Local Restrictions Support Grants (LRSG) to support businesses required to close during local and national lockdowns. These include grant payments to support: 

  • Nightclubs, dance halls, and discos and sexual entertainment venues and hostess bars which have been required to close since 23 March 2020. (Grant payments are effective from 1 November and will not be backdated). 
  • Businesses required to close due to Manchester being placed in Local COVID Alert Level: Very High (Tier 3) from 23 October until 4 November 2020. This includes pubs, bars, casinos, adult gaming establishments, betting shops and soft play centres.  
  • Businesses required to close due to national lockdown restrictions from 5 November until 2 December 2020. This includes the business affected by the Tier 3 restrictions as well as all non-essential retail, hospitality venues, accommodation, leisure and sports facilities, entertainment venues, personal care facilities and community centres. 

We can pay a grant to businesses that are registered in the city of Manchester.
