Funding support for businesses affected by Omicron variant
The Chancellor has today (21 December 2021) announced that the Government is providing extra support for the hospitality and leisure sectors. This will consist of one off grants of up to £6,000 per premises. Details of the qualifying criteria have not been published yet.
Richmondshire District Council will also be making available further Additional Restrictions Grant funding to address the impact in trade caused by the Omicron variant of Covid-19 for those who may not be eligible for the Government’s “one off” grants.
Applications for funding will be opened in the early part of January, with payments likely to start by the end of January 2022.
Further detailed information will be published on the website as soon as it becomes available.
