Dear BID Businesses, Please find below the latest information regarding Covid Grants from Arun District Council.
Grants Application Dates In late December 2021 the Government announced further grants for businesses that continue to be affected by Covid.
Those Grants will shortly be available and can be applied for via www.grantapproval.co.uk - as previously. Omicron Hospitality & Leisure Grants (OHL) - for businesses in these sectors with commercial premises. Available from 25th January.
Additional Restrictions (Discretionary) Grants - Round 7 - for businesses in the Leisure and Hospitality sectors who continue to be affected but do not have commercial premises. Available from 20th January. Other business outside the Leisure and Hospitality sectors that continue to be affected by Covid can also apply but preference will be given to Hospitality & Leisure businesses.
It is not possible to receive both grants. Full guidance is available here - COVID-19 business grant funding schemes: guidance for local authorities - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) The OHL guidance is available here - *Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant: guidance for Local Authorities (publishing.service.gov.uk) The list of businesses that can apply for the OHL Grant is on Page 18. Please read this to ensure you apply for the correct grant. The details required for each grant are very different and if you complete the incorrect form it cannot be reused for the correct grant, meaning you will have to complete a new application. Both grants will close for applications on 28th February 2022. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
