IMPORTANT - Grant Scheme Application Portal is now open for Tier 4 Lockdown Business Grant Relief

The latest grant relief to assist businesses during the Tier 4 lockdown is now available. A range of businesses can benefit from the support and details are available on the Walsall Council web site. The council is administering the distribution of the grant aid on behalf of central government.

Since the initial lockdown early in 2020, the council has issued 5,968 emergency government grants worth in excess of £48 million.

Some of the grants are based on the rateable value of business premises but businesses who share premises or have no premises may also be able to apply. The grants also cover market traders and B&B’s. Discretionary grants are also available.
