The second stage of the Local Authority Discretionary Grant Fund is open for applications from businesses in North Tyneside.

Phase two will support businesses with a rateable value of between £15,000 and £51,000, and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure businesses with a rateable value of between £51,000 and £75,000 in addition to the categories highlighted in Phase one.

This is an additional fund to the Small Business & Retail, Hospitality & Leisure Fund which is aimed at businesses who do not qualify for the Small Business Grant or the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant, which have relatively high, ongoing, fixed property-related costs, and which can demonstrate that they have suffered a significant fall in income due to the COVID-19 crisis. Unfortunately, home based businesses are not eligible to apply for this schme.
