This page has details on national business grants that are available and how you can apply for them. The government has created a support finder that will help you see what support your business can apply for.

If you have previously applied for funding you may not need to apply again, or you may only need to complete a shorter application.

If in doubt, call our dedicated business support helpline on 023 9284 1641, Monday to Friday, before completing any forms.

We appreciate the difficult situation many Portsmouth businesses are in. We are working hard to get the various grant schemes out to businesses as quickly and diligently as we can. We are currently working through a large volume of applications.

If you have previously received Closed Addendum funding you do not need to reapply and should receive new payments when they are available. An application form is available for new applicants.

Applications for LRSG (Closed) (Addendum) for previous payment periods need to be submitted by 31 March 2021.

You can sign up to our business bulletin to be alerted on the latest application advice.
