Businesses that do not have a rateable value are eligible to apply for this discretionary scheme which aims to help affected businesses which do not meet the criteria for other grants.
Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council is distributing the grant according to an eligibility criteria and priority will be given to businesses in the greatest need.
Grants are expected to range from £500 up to £2,500. The council retains discretion to award lower or higher grants as it sees fit. The funding is limited for these grants; therefore, grants will be paid on a first come first served basis as long as all necessary information is supplied.
Council Leader, Cllr Stuart Bray said: "The Omicron variant could not have hit 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 21 February.
"All grant payments remain a priority and we are keen to distribute these grants to support our businesses as soon as possible."
Eligible businesses must submit a new application by the deadline of 21 February 2022 regardless of previous grants they have applied for.
