Hospitality, leisure and accommodation businesses in West Lindsey can now apply for grant funding to help with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With Coronavirus cases rising nationally, the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant will provide extra support to businesses in the hospitality, leisure and accommodation sector who are registered with business rates.
Cllr Tracey Coulson, Vice Chair of the Prosperous Communities Committee said: “We know how hard businesses in our District have been hit by the continuing pressures of COVID-19, pressures which have now been there for nearly two-years. The moment this funding was announced by Central Government, we made sure it would be available for eligible business owners as soon as possible.
“In West Lindsey, our local businesses in the hospitality and leisure industry remain fundamental to the local economy as well as to local jobs – and we as a council will look to help and support this sector as much as we can. We invite all eligible business owners to come forward and access the support.”
The grants are part of a £1 billion fund announced by Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak MP on 21 December 2021.
Eligible businesses in the sector can apply for a one-off grant of between £2,000 and £6,000 to help support their business. A full list of the types of eligible businesses can be found on our website.
