Published Friday, 07 January 2022

Applications for a new business grant which will aim to help the hospitality and leisure sector in Hinckley and Bosworth are now open.

The Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant is being administered by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and will support hospitality, leisure, and accommodation businesses in the borough which have been impacted by the Omicron variant.

The scheme will provide eligible businesses with a one-off grant based on the rateable value of their business on 30 December 2021. Grants range from £2,667 to £6,000.

Council Leader, Councillor Stuart Bray said:

The Omicron variant could not have hit hospitality and leisure businesses at a worse time. I would urge the borough’s businesses to check if they are eligible for this latest government grant by visiting our website and applying before the deadline of 28 February.

All grant payments remain a priority and we are keen to distribute these grants to support our businesses as soon as possible.
