Council launches Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant scheme to help businesses

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has launched a new grant scheme to help East Yorkshire businesses in the hospitality and leisure sectors that have been most impacted by the Omicron variant.

The Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant scheme will support hospitality, leisure and accommodation business premises with one-off grants of up to £6,000.

Eligible businesses must occupy a property which is registered for business rates and have been trading on 30 December 2021.

The Government has asked councils to obtain information and evidence from businesses as part of the grant scheme. Businesses must use the online application process on the council’s website to apply for the grant, which will ensure that eligible businesses submit the correct information and can receive the grant.

All applications will be subject to a number of fraud checks which the Government requires councils to undertake ahead of payments being processed.

Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic growth and tourism, said: "The council recognises how important the payment of the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant is for individual businesses. We are now encouraging businesses to visit our website to check whether they are eligible for this payment."

Types of businesses that are eligible to apply for this grant include public houses, restaurants, cafes, wedding and events venues, tourist attractions, hotels, B&Bs and many more.

For a list of the types of businesses that are eligible to apply, details about how to apply, or for more information about who can claim this funding and any exclusions that apply, visit: https://www.eastriding.gov.uk/business/coronavirus-grants-for-businesses-and-charities/omicron-hospitality-and-leisure-grant/   

The deadline for applications is 6 February 2022.
