Omicron Grant (Hospitality and Leisure sectors)

From Monday 17th January – Any existing business rated business who has already been assessed and received a grant in the past and is now entitled to the new Omicron Grant (Hospitality and Leisure sectors) will receive an automated email asking them to verify and update their details and to complete a self-declaration

ARG Discretionary Grant

This will open on 1st February and run until the 28th February 

A revised policy and criteria will be updated on this page as soon as it has been finalised. A new application will be required for all applications and these will be assessed against the criteria in the policy.

Bath and North East Somerset Council’s £366,073 allocation of the £102 million Additional Restrictions Grant top-up will not be sufficient to support all businesses. There will inevitably be some businesses who may be deemed as significantly impacted by the Omicron COVID-19 but will not receive a grant because they are not as severely impacted in comparison to other businesses who have applied. The purpose of an application window is to assess all applications at the same time and identify the businesses impacted the most and award grants accordingly to those impacted the most.
