COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund

The COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF) is open for a second round of applications. CARF is available to businesses affected by the pandemic but ineligible for existing support linked to business rates.

If your business has been affected by COVID-19 and it is struggling to adapt to that impact, check your eligibility for relief. Depending on the level of demand to the fund, businesses can get up to 100 per cent business rates relief for the 2021-2022 financial year credited back.

Applications to the relief fund must be made by 31 July. Bristol City Council will then assess all applications and notify businesses as soon as possible of the outcome.

If you submitted an application before 31 May 2022, you do not need to apply again. Bristol City Council are aiming to notify you and award the relief by the end of July 2022.
