A new round of Covid grants for hospitality & leisure businesses

18 Jan 2022

Shropshire Council have just announced that their £5.8 million Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Business grant scheme is now accepting applications.

You have until the end of February to apply, with all money paid into accounts by the end of March – but almost certainly much sooner.

The Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant funding will be handed out to eligible businesses across the county, after being opened by the council today. 

Fresh applications will be needed from all eligible businesses, with guidance on how to complete the process also on the website. 

A further round of the discretionary grant scheme worth more than £600,000 will also be launched later in the month.

The Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grants will once again be handed out on a tiered system based on your businesses rateable value. Please note businesses that provide sports and physical exercise facilities and those offering personal care, such as hairdressers, are excluded from the scheme by the Government.

To qualify the business must be trading and on the rating list as of 30 December 2021.  

They are:   

  • Less or equal to £15,000: £2,667

  • Between £15,001 but less than £51,000: £4,000

  • £51,000 or more: £6,000.
