Round 2 of DBG application process has now closed.

Assessing your application

Your application will be assessed to establish the impact that the COVID-19 restrictive measures have had on the ongoing commercial fixed property related costs of your business.

Birmingham City Council will not begin processing until after the window has closed on the Monday 17 August 2020. 

We anticipate an extremely high volume of applications and will endeavour to respond to you as quickly as possible.

However, it may take up to 28 days from the date the application window closes before we can respond to you.

This time frame assumes that all information has been completed correctly and full evidence provided. We will either approve, defer subject to additional information, or decline your application.

Please note that this is a limited discretionary funding pot and all grant funding decisions are final.

If you haven't heard from us after the 28 days processing time you can call to enquire on 0121 216 1020.
