Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Find information about community support and our services during the coronavirus pandemic, on our information for residents pages, our information for businesses pages, and our community support hub page which has guidance to help coordinate community organisations.

When will businesses receive the £10,000 or £25,000 grant announced by the government?

Information about when the first grants will be paid to businesses.

West Berkshire Council has now received formal clarification on the types of businesses eligible for these grants and the funding has been released to us.

Our business rates team will be contacting individual businesses directly by email or phone with the expectation that these first grants will be allocated the week commencing 6th April.

As our previous communications indicated, businesses do not need to contact us. We will be in touch with them with the information required.
