Restart Grant Details to be Confirmed Tomorrow
The Restart Grant for Small Business, which aims to provide essential capital to help businesses get back up and running, will open for applications tomorrow (22nd of May). Eligible businesses will be able to receive up to €10,000, and a minimum of €2,000, based on their Commercial Rates bill from 2019.
While Dublin Chamber welcomed the details of the Restart Grant, we urged Minister Heather Humphreys to double the turnover limit of companies eligible for the grant from €5 million to €10 million. The view of the Chamber is that all small firms impacted by the crisis should be eligible to apply for the Restart Grant and we will continue to lobby Government on this important message. You can find more details on what's been announced thus far about the Restart Grant here.
We will update you over the coming days about the finer details of the scheme and how to apply. Please feel free to contact us if you have feedback on the scheme or any of the other Government Covid-19 supports.
