South Cambridgeshire businesses can now apply for the latest COVID Government support grants via the District Council

Applications opened this week for the latest grant schemes to be administered by South Cambridgeshire District Council. The first is the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant (OHLG). The second is further funding available via the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG).

Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant

The OHLG is targeted at businesses within the hospitality and leisure sector which were trading as registered Business Rates payers in South Cambridgeshire on 30 December 2021. These businesses could be eligible for a one-off payment because the rise of the Omicron variant led to severe impacts on their industry. Grants of up to £6,000 are available, depending on the rateable value of each business. Businesses in hospitality, leisure and tourism accommodation sectors, who offer in-person services (like food and drink, experiences and lodging for holiday purposes) are being encouraged to check the full eligibility criteria online to see whether they are eligible to apply. Eligible businesses should apply for these grants by 18 February 2022. Payments will be made by 31 March 2022.

Additional Restrictions Grant

The Council has decided to make best use of the ARG funding from Government by providing support to eligible businesses that do not have a rateable value, and / or are ineligible to receive the OHLG, but nonetheless operate in the supply chain to businesses in the hospitality, leisure and accommodation sectors. Businesses eligible to apply for the ARG should operate within:

Hospitality, leisure, accommodation, personal care, the travel and tourism sector including group travel, travel agents and tour operators, coach operators, wedding industries, nightclubs, theatres, events industries, wholesalers, English language schools, breweries, freelance and mobile businesses (including caterers, events, hair, beauty and wedding related) gyms, and other businesses that may not have received other grant funding.
