Businesses that have already received funding under the Restart Grant do not need to re-apply under the Restart Grant Plus Scheme.

Businesses who have already applied for and/or received payment under the initial Restart Grant Scheme will be contacted by email in the coming weeks by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and asked to complete a declaration form. Once the declaration form is returned, the additional payment will be processed.

Key changes to the Restart Grant Plus Scheme:

  • €300m additional funding in addition to €250m previously committed
  • Grant amount has increased substantially. Minimum grant is now €4,000 and maximum is €25,000. Previous grant amounts were €2,000 and €10,000 respectively
  • Medium sized companies now eligible Companies with up to 250 employees can now apply (previously the grant was for companies with less than 50 employees)
  • Increased eligibility Non-rateable B&Bs, sports clubs with commercial activities and trading charity shops are now eligible

If you haven’t already applied for the restart grant please apply here now.
