The Welsh Government has extended the Restrictions Business Fund to support businesses and sole traders that have been directly impacted by the extended restrictions announced by the First Minister on 29th January 2021 needed to control the spread of Covid-19. 

The fund consists of two separate grants. Please note, you can only apply for one of them.

Grant 1 – You could be eligible for this grant if you:
