Helping London’s SMEs find the local grants available to them
Use this website to see if you might be eligible for the new discretionary local business grants, part of the government's COVID-19 business support package.
Some more info...
The Government have allocated additional funds to the local authorities to enable them to provide grants to certain [sole traders and] SMEs who have not been able to access the COVID-19 government support.
Every local authority has the discretion to use these funds to support local businesses. This means that eligibility criteria may vary depending on which borough your business is based in. This tool will help direct you to the scheme within your local authority and help you understand if you can apply for funds.
Check if you are eligible...
Before you start, make sure you meet the core national criteria which apply to everyone.
To be eligible you have to be an SME and:
Have relatively high ongoing fixed property-related costs
Be able to demonstrate that you have suffered a significant fall in income due to the COVID-19 crisis
Have been trading on 11 March
Not be eligible for other central government COVID-19 related scheme (apart from the Self Employed Income support scheme)
If you don't meet these criteria, sorry but this is not for you.
 *as defined in Section 33 Part 2 of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 and the Companies Act 2006
