Hospitality, leisure and accommodation businesses in Chesterfield who have been affected by Omicron variant of COVID-19 are being encouraged to apply for a support grant.

The Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant provides grants from £2,667 up to £6,000 to support local businesses impacted by the pandemic.

  • it is one of the hospitality, leisure or accommodation business types that are eligible for this payment (some exclusions do apply as per the BEIS guidance)

A business will not be entitled to a payment if it has entered into administration or insolvency or has exceeded the permitted Business Grant Subsidy Allowance.


Only the Business Rates payer at 30 December 2021 is entitled to claim this payment.

Businesses that may qualify for this grant are being contacted by the council’s business grants team directly. However, if you think you are eligible and have not been in touch with anyone from the council about this yet, please complete the application form linked below.
