The Chancellor announced on 21 December 2021 that new Covid grant funding will be made available to help businesses in the leisure and hospitality sectors. Further guidance from the Government on the details of the scheme has now been sent out.

Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grants

We are now in a position to open the main scheme for applications from businesses who are potentially eligible for the Omicron Grant, covering those businesses in the hospitality/accommodation/leisure sectors.

Visit our Covid Business Grants webpage for more details on the OHLG scheme.

Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG)

Our ARG scheme is now open to applications for businesses impacted by the Omicron variant but which are not eligible for the main Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant (OHLG). We have to be focused on the sectors that we are able to support through the ARG scheme due to the limited funding available through this round and due to the scope of sectors supported through the main OHLG scheme. Businesses are advised to read the policy and provide all the required information and evidence when making an application.

Visit our Covid Business Grants webpage for more details on the ARG scheme.
