Financial Support For Business

Applications open now

How to apply - all grants

A range of grants is now available – via the Council – for Rotherham-based businesses which have been affected by Covid-19 restrictions.

New grants types are being launched regularly – so do keep checking these pages, which provide the latest information about what grants are available and how to apply.

The following pages will explain the criteria for each scheme. Some will require you to provide specific evidence along with your application. Your claim cannot be completed without this evidence – so do check the details for each scheme. 

Single application form

You can apply for any of the grants listed in these pages via our online grants portal.

The application form will ask a series of questions to determine your business’ eligibility across all the schemes currently available. We’ll then use this information to assess your claim and calculate the total amount of financial support available to you.

Keeping in touch

Once you submit an application, you will receive email updates as your claim progresses.

If you need to contact us about your application, or send further information, you should do this via the portal using the link in any of the emails from us.

Please note – we are unable to provide updates by phone. This is to ensure our team can progress everyone’s claims as quickly as possible.

Applied and been unsuccessful?

If your application isn’t approved, you’ll receive an email to explain the reason. It may be that your business is not eligible, or that you have not supplied some information we require.

You should use the link in this email if you want to:

  • have us review the decision in light of additional information
  • be re-assessed for newly announced grants.

Do not create a new application - this will delay processing your information and making any payments that you are eligible for.

Already applied and received a grant?

If extensions or top-ups become available on grant schemes that you have already received payments under, we will use the details you have already provided to process further payments automatically. We’ll notify you by email that is happening.

If you were expecting a further automatic payment of grant and have not received the payment or the email, please use this form to let us know and we will review your case. If we need further information from you we’ll get in touch.
