Business Support Grants

As there are currently a number of grant schemes available to help support local businesses – we’ve put them all together on this page so you can easily choose which form to complete based on your business needs.

There is funding available for Tier 4 (31st December to 4th January 2021) and the National Lockdown which commenced on 5th January 2021.  Where possible we will make automatic payments based upon applications and entitlement to other grant schemes.  This funding is available to ratepayers within the business rates system that have been mandated to close by law for these periods.  If you have not been notified that you will receive a payment and believe that you are entitled, please contact businessrates@boston.gov.uk 

Wet-led pubs will receive a one-off Christmas support payment of £1,000 if they are in Tier 2 or Tier 3 areas following the reviews of Tier areas on the 2 and 16 December.

This means that any wet-led pub that is in a Tier 2 or 3 area for any period between 2 December and 29 December will receive the payment
