With various parts of Wales under local lockdown measures to combat the spread of coronavirus, the Welsh Government has allocated £60 million to support businesses affected by restrictions.
The purpose of the Local Lockdown Business Fund is to support firms with cash flow support, helping them survive the economic consequences of the COVID-19 restrictions put in place in their local area.
The fund consists of two separate grants for businesses in eligible areas of Wales:
The scheme will open for applications 28 days after a local authority imposes local restrictions. It will be open for a period of three weeks or until the fund is fully committed. Businesses can apply for a grant by accessing their local authority’s Local Lockdown webpage.
Applications will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis.
