Business Grants Funds Closure

1,317 grants have been made to businesses premises in the Castle Point Borough area since the beginning of April 2020.  

These grants have been vital to our local economy – helping ensure the survival of shops, cafes, hotels, restaurants and many other businesses.

The vast majority (92%) of eligible businesses have claimed their grants and we are now in the final stages of completing this programme.

Given this, Central Government has recently directed that the Small Business Grants Fund and the Retail, Hospitality & Leisure Grants Fund will close by 28 August 2020.

Any eligible businesses that have not yet claimed these Grants, and still wish to do so, must apply before this deadline.

Information about the closure of these schemes has been publicised via Twitter and Council’s website -
