Cafes, small shops and other Galway businesses urged to apply for restart grants

Cafes, hairdressers, clothes shops and other small businesses across Gawlay have been urged to apply for the new €250m Restart Grant.

The grants will help micro and small businesses with the costs associated with reopening and reemploying workers following COVID-19 closures.

They will be equivalent to the rates bill of the business in 2019, with a minimum payment of €2,000 and a maximum payment of €10,000.

Minister Ciaran Cannon has urged businesses in the county to apply.

“The Grant will be available to businesses with a turnover of less than €5m and employing 50 people or less, which were closed or impacted by at least a 25% reduction in turnover out to 30 June 2020,” he explained.

“It is a contribution towards the cost of re-opening or keeping a business operational and re-connecting with employees and customers and the grants will be equivalent to the rates bill of the business in 2019, with a minimum payment of €2,000 and a maximum payment of €10,000.”

Applications for the Restart Grant can be made online to Galway County Council from Friday 22 May.
