The closing date for the Restart Grant Plus scheme under Donegal County Council has been extended from 30th September to 31st October 2020.
The Restart Grant Plus is a NEW standalone grant that is available to all eligible businesses, including those who received a grant in the first Restart Grant Scheme.
The grant is a contribution towards the cost of re-opening or keeping a business operational.
A further top up of 40% is now available due to the Level 3 restrictions currently in force in Donegal. This will issue automatically in due course and does not require another application.
Wet Pubs in the county are entitled to a further top up payment on their original Restart Plus Grant of 40%.
The maximum grant available is now €31,000 and the minimum payment is €5,600 based on your 2019 commercial rates bill.
Customers who received the original Restart Grant are eligible to apply for a second top-up payment.
The coouncil say any commercial trading entity operating from a commercially rateable business can apply, subject to meeting the application conditions which can be found on the council website donegalcoco.ie
