Grants for clubs who are ineligible for rates grants

December 3, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


Some England Boxing clubs who are ineligible for rates grants can access funding through the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) provided by local councils.

Applications are open to clubs that do not pay business rates but were forced to close for the second national lockdown from 5th November to 2nd December.

Who receives these grants is determined by each local council, and they decide their own criteria, but is usually expected to include:

  • businesses which supply the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors (relevant for boxing clubs)
  • businesses in the events sector
  • business required to close but which do not pay business rates

How to apply

For more details, the criteria and how to apply, visit your local council’s website.
