The Canterbury City Council is seeking applications for its Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grants.

Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grants will provide up to £6,000 for businesses in the hospitality sector (accommodation and food and beverage services), and leisure sectors who have been impacted by Omicron.

These grants are property based and will be paid to the business rates payer.

Businesses will be eligible for this support from 30 December 2021. Some businesses may get more than one grant where they have more than one eligible property.

Eligibility

Your business must:
• Occupy properties that are in the ratings list

o Hospitality
o Leisure
o Accommodation
• Offer ‘in-person’ services from the premises that they are applying for.
o A business would not be eligible if its in-person activity does not take place within the rated property.
