On 1 May 2020 during a call to Local Authorities, the Government announced that a further up to £617 million is being made available to Local Authorities in England to allow them to provide discretionary grants as part of the suite of Business Support grants to support businesses and local economies across England.

Businesses that have received Self-employment Income Support are not eligible for funding under the Local Authority Discretionary Grants Fund.
