The Government has made £12.3 billion available to businesses under the Small Business Grants Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants Fund. Local authorities are contacting businesses directly to deliver these grants.
As of 26 April, over 610,000 business premises have received grants across the two schemes, totalling over £7.59 billion.
