Discretionary grants for businesses

How to apply

Thank you if you have submitted an application for a discretionary grant for your business.  Applications have now closed and we will shortly be contacting all those who have applied.

Decision making and appeals

The applications will be reviewed by a panel of officers of Ealing Council and a recommendation will be to a senior officer for approval. This panel will consist of officers from finance and economic growth.

Any award will be at the absolute discretion of the chief finance officer and their decision will be final. There is no statutory right of appeal against a decision regarding discretionary grants made by the council.

To ensure that the discretionary business support grant reaches those businesses most in need, this policy will be reviewed by the chief finance officer two weeks after launch, following which the council reserves the right to modify eligibility criteria and funding thresholds.
