Camden Additional Restrictions Grants available to support local business
Camden council has launched an additional grant programme to help support the borough’s evening and night time economy, as more as more live music and cultural venues reopen.
Businesses in Camden have been hit really hard by this crisis, and so our teams are working tirelessly to ensure payments are made as quickly as possible when we receive the required evidence.
This round of our Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) scheme is targeted towards local businesses not covered by other financial support schemes, along with those that we have identified as a priority group for additional support.
This includes funding to support the borough’s evening and night time economy as more live music and cultural venues reopen, as well as street traders or fixed premises in areas of need that we have identified.
We have already distributed approximately 23,741 payments totalling £160.57m, and since December 2021, have issued close to 1,500 ARG grant payments, totaling £11.2m to support local businesses.
We are here to support all businesses throughout this lockdown, and are committed to helping them come back stronger. If businesses need to get in touch or need more information, they can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a range of one-off grant payments available depending on the type or size of venue, including:
- Grants of up to £10,000 for live music venues
- Grants of up to £10,000 for museums, galleries and theatres
- Grants up to £2,000 for street traders or fixed premises in certain areas
- Grants of up to £12,000 to support businesses still affected by restrictions and who may not have received grant support
We know it has been a tough year so we are delighted to support our local venues as they reopen in time for the summer holidays, ready to welcome customers and visitors back.
Our local businesses and high streets are part of what makes Camden vibrant and unique and while 19 July marked an important milestone in our fight against the pandemic, coronavirus cases are continuing to rise and people are still catching the virus.
