Local Authority Discretionary Fund

This grant is for businesses in Scotland who have not been eligible for previous business support grants. If your business is still being adversely impacted by Tier 4 restrictions (and you have not received any support), you are eligible to apply. 

The £120 million fund will be distributed by local authorities (local councils) across Scotland. It will help with the short-term financial challenges being experienced by businesses.

This fund is managed by local authorities. Funds will be issued at their discretion. They will assess which businesses have not received support until now and are most in need. 

Further information on these funds will be published on local council websites. This will be updated when further information becomes available: Local Authority Discretionary Fund (findbusinesssupport.gov.scot)
