The spreadsheets show the total amount of money that each local authority in England:

  • distributed to SMEs

24 February 2021: LRSG and ARG data

This data relates to grant payments made by local authorities to businesses up to 17 January 2021, and is based on self-reporting by authorities.

During the period from which the data is drawn, several local authorities will have moved quickly between tiers and into national restrictions complicating the administration of the grants. During the current period of national restrictions (January 2021 onwards), we expect performance to have increased due to the time length of the restrictions and the range of grants available. We will provide further updates for this data.

Local authorities are able to use the Additional Restrictions Grant until the end of financial year 2021 / 2022.
