Local Authority Discretionary Grants Fund 

Discretionary Grant Funds are overseen by our local authority partners across Oxfordshire. This latest batch of funding will allow businesses - who have previously missed out on grant funding - to receive crucial support during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Here are direct links to our local authorities' discretionary grants fund pages:

Small Business Grants Fund 

Organisations in-receipt of small business rate relief, or rural rate relief, can make use of grants of £10,000 through the Small Business Grants Fund. Businesses in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors with business properties with a rateable value of less than £51,000 are eligible for grants of up to £25,000 through the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant scheme.

We therefore encourage businesses to consult with your respective local authorities.

Reopening High Streets Safely Fund 

Councils in England will benefit from a new £50 million fund to prepare for the safe reopening of high streets and other retail spaces. This new money will support practical measures so businesses can re-open quickly when they are allowed to, staff get back to work and customers return to shops confident it is safe.
