Restart Grants which will support businesses to reopen safely made available through the council
Restart Grants to support non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses in the East Riding and across England will be available from Thursday, April 1.
The grant scheme is intended to help businesses that are predominantly reliant on delivering in-person services for the general public to reopen safely as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
The Government has asked councils to obtain further information from businesses as part of the Restart Grants scheme. It will be contacting all businesses who have previously been awarded a Local Restrictions Support Grant (closed businesses) and an application process will be available for other eligible businesses

Councillor Richard Burton, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The council recognises how important the payment of the Restart Grants is for individual businesses and restarting the economy.
“The funding will be of great support allowing businesses to reopen once restrictions are lifted in April and May in a safe a manner and, most importantly, to protect the public who use their services.
“We will make payments as quickly as possible and encourage businesses to visit our website to check whether they are eligible for this payment.”
