Following the move to Phase 3 of COVID-19 restrictions for Dublin County and City from last Friday, Government has also confirmed that it will provide a package of investment for impacted Dublin businesses.

Support Actions announced include:

Topped up Restart Grant Plus:

Dublin businesses impacted by 25% or more fall in turnover will now be entitled to a 30% top-up, bringing the new minimum for affected counties to €5,200 and the new maximum to €32,500. Those that applied and received a grant previously, can receive the top up of 30%.

Increased Agency Support:

Applications from Dublin will be prioritised for the wide range of existing loan and voucher schemes available to assist businesses affected by Covid-19 through the July Jobs Stimulus and other Government initiatives. This includes the LEO Trading On-Line Vouchers, MicroFinance Ireland Covid-19 Loan Fund and access to liquidity and investment finance schemes

Promotional Campaign:

The Dublin Local Enterprise Offices, in conjunction with local Chambers of Commerce and other business representative groups, will undertake an awareness, media and promotional campaign to let businesses know what grants, mentorship and low-cost loans are available to them. A dedicated helpline will be established to help companies access relevant enterprise supports.
