Additional Restrictions Grants

Home based and mobile businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic are being encouraged to apply for an initial £500 grant. Eligible businesses can now apply for the grant online via Bedford Borough Council’s website at

Grants will be awarded to local businesses and home based and mobile businesses that have fixed business costs and have experienced a significant reduction in income due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The grants form part of the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG), which is a fixed amount of funding from the Government and is intended to provide support to businesses right up until April 2022. £2million of the ARG will be put towards these grants with the potential for further support for local businesses that qualify for an initial grant where the funding is available. These grants are not intended to replace income that has been lost due to restrictions or provide income to the business owner. The Government has put in place other forms of support to assist business owners whose personal income has been affected by restrictions. Rather, the payment is to assist with fixed business costs.
