Waltham Forest Additional Restrictions Grant

The next round of Additional Restrictions Grants has now been launched with fewer restrictions on the type of business that can apply.

Waltham Forest council aims to distribute up to £6.5million by the end of June in the two grant schemes available:

  • Hardship Fund – additional financial help to otherwise viable Waltham Forest businesses, not eligible for other forms of financial support, OR where the existing support can be demonstrated to be insufficient to ensure survival.
  • Growth Fund (Launching on 17 May 2021) – for businesses that demonstrate significant future investment into the borough. Applicants will be required to provide a business plan and demonstrate how the business supports local priorities.

We intend to support as many businesses as possible and are very keen to help businesses who may not have been eligible for other forms of financial support, as well as those who are keen to invest and grow post-pandemic.
