Published on Friday, 19th March 2021

We are excited to be able to invite applications for Business Adaption Grants from small and medium sized businesses to help them make improvements and adaptations to respond to the challenges of Covid-19. 

The Essex Business Adaption Grant Scheme (BAG), enables a one off payment of up to £1500 to enable changes or improvements for businesses to ensure the health and safety of employees and customers, to develop new operating practices such as home working, or to capitalise on new opportunities such as new click & collect, takeaway or delivery services. 

With many businesses preparing for reopening over the coming weeks this funding will be a valuable source of additional help. 

Applications can be submitted at, and more details can be found at

Further support for businesses is available from the BEST Growth Hub which is helping businesses to understand the available grants. Telephone 0300 303 4864. 

We are extremely excited to be able to provide one off grants to support businesses to make adaptations and improvements  to their business to enable them to respond to the challenges of Covid 19.

With so many of our local businesses getting ready for reopening during the coming months this funding will be a valuable source of financial support.
