The new the Restart Grant Plus, announced as part of the Government’s July Stimulus package, is now open for applications. Like the previous Restart Grant it will assist businesses in covering the costs associated with reopening following the COVID-19 lockdown.
Businesses that have already received funding under the original Restart Grant do not need to re-apply for the Restart Grant Plus Scheme. These businesses will be contacted by email by their local council and this email will outline what each business needs to do in order to receive a top up payment under the scheme.
Eligible businesses, that have not already applied, can make an application through their Local Authority. See the criteria for eligibility here. The closing date for applications is September 30.
Non-rateable B&Bs will shortly be able to apply for a grant through Fáilte Ireland.
