Coronavirus (COVID-19): Strategic Framework Business Grant

The Scottish Government has launched a new COVID-19 Strategic Framework Business Grant for businesses (including sports clubs) that are required to close by law or to significantly change operations as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. This support is separate from and in addition to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Restrictions Fund.

Funding Amounts Available:

  • Temporary closure grant - £2,000 or £3,000 (depending on rateable value) if your business is required to close by law
  • Business restrictions grant - £1,400 or £2,100 (depending on rateable value) if your business can remain open but is specifically required to modify its operations by law, for example having to close earlier than normal or demand for your products or services has been reduced because of the pandemic

Grants will be paid every 4 weeks in arrears as long as restrictions last. Eligibility criteria, local authority contacts and more information is detailed here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-strategic-framework-business-fund/

Please let our National Development Officers know the outcome of your application or if you require any additional support.
