Restrictions Business Fund: Discretionary Grant

The Welsh Government has launched the Restrictions Business Fund to support businesses that have been directly impacted by the additional restrictions put in place during December 2020 to control the spread of Covid-19. The Discretionary Grant is not restricted to hospitality, leisure or tourism businesses.

The discretionary grant covers the period from 4 December up to the end of January 2021.

Note: Businesses cannot apply for both the NDR grant and the discretionary grant parts of the fund. Before applying for a discretionary grant, check whether you are eligible for a higher grant via the NDR grant part of the Restrictions Business Fund.


A discretionary grant of £2,000 is available to assist businesses that have:

  • been forced or required to close as a result of the national restrictions put in place for hospitality businesses


  • estimate that the latest restrictions put in place will result in at least a 40% reduction in their turnover for December 2020 & January 2021 as compared to December 2019 and January 2020 (or September 2020 turnover if not trading in December 2019)
