Update on Covid business support – deadlines extended

Graham Robson February 3, 2021

Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC) has announced businesses can still apply for grants covering the second lockdown between November 5 and December 1 and eligible pubs and bars for Christmas Support Payments.

Following government changes made at the end of last week, applications for Christmas Support Payments have been extended to February 28, so If you haven’t made a claim yet don’t delay. Applications take around 30 minutes through the online form.

There is no closing date for the other government business grants which are available for the November lockdown, the tier 2 December restrictions that followed, and further payments if restrictions continue.

Businesses only need to make one application for the main business grants – BHCC will work out all your grants entitlements from November 1 onwards.

Some businesses that were not eligible for earlier grants may now be able to get a payment from the current lockdown. For example, businesses that were rejected for earlier grants because they were not forced to close, may be able to claim for the current lockdown.
