Access local council grant funding in Scotland

Updated March 21
What are local authority discretionary funds?

The Scottish Government has provided funding to Scottish councils to provide additional support to businesses. The aim of the funding is to mitigate short term issues being experienced by businesses due to the Coronavirus restrictions that were introduced in October.

Am I eligible?

Local authorities will be able to direct financial support to specific groups, sectors or businesses within their local areas. This means that eligibility criteria across the country may vary.

How do I apply?

Businesses apply directly through their local authority. Some funds will close for a period, and then re-open so please check your council's website regularly.
