Enterprise Support Grant for businesses impacted by COVID-19


The Enterprise Support Grant will shortly be available to assist eligible self-employed recipients who are closing the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment scheme.

  • The grant will be made available to assist self-employed recipients who are coming off the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP)
  • It will be a once-off grant of up to €1,000 to micro enterprises which employ fewer than 10 people to re-start their business
  • The overall fund will be worth €12 million and will be operated by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (this may be subject to change with the recent Ministerial appointments)
