Businesses can now apply for a financial grant worth up to £6,000 as government delivers funding to local authorities.
Businesses in England most impacted by the Omicron variant will be able to tap into the multimillion-pound support package in the coming weeks, as the government delivers funding to councils across the country.
Businesses in the hospitality, leisure & accommodation sectors, will be able to apply for one-off grants of up to £6,000 per premises depending on rateable value:
· Businesses with a rateable value of £51,000 or above: £6,000
· Businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 & £51,000: £4,000
· Businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or below: £2,667
Businesses are able to apply to the local council for grant funding which will be administered over the coming weeks.
In addition, more than £100 million worth of discretionary funding is also being made available for local authorities to support other businesses.
The funding forms part of the £1bn support package which was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak last month.
