Business grants and financial support

Business grants are payable to local businesses, based on the level of temporary lockdowns placed on Rutland during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The criteria and amounts will vary based on the level of restriction, but is also based on the size of your business and whether or not you were forced to close.
