ARG Grant Has Been Updated To Include Events Businesses That Are Not Eligible For Other Grants

Another chance for a bit of support

ARG Update
The guidance on the ARG grant has been updated to specifically include tourism and events businesses that are not eligible for other grants. Local councils have the freedom to determine the eligibility criteria for these grants. However, we expect the funding to help those businesses which – while not legally forced to close – are nonetheless severely impacted by the restrictions.

This could include:
• businesses which supply the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors
• businesses in the tourism and events sectors
• business required to close but which do not pay business rates

Now talk to your local authority who have been given this cash to distribute to people like you.

Let AFO office know how you get on. We need good news and not so good news
