Coronavirus: Extended Restrictions Business Fund discretionary grant

The Extended Restrictions Business Fund, provided by Welsh Government, is for businesses and sole traders who have been forced to close or were directly impacted by the extended restrictions put in place on 29 January 2021 to control the spread of Covid 19.

This fund is in addition to the discretionary grant that businesses may have received for the December 2020 and January 2021 period. The purpose of the grant is to provide businesses with cash flow support and to help them survive the economic effects of the extended restrictions.

The Extended Restrictions Business Fund Discretionary Grant closed on 11 March 2021.
