A brand new support grant is available for businesses impacted by the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in late 2021 in the South Hams.

The Additional Restrictions Grant Omicron (ARGO) is a grant designed for businesses who felt the effects of the Omicron strain, but may not have qualified for the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant.

Businesses may qualify for the ARGO if:

  • It had to close as a result of the Omicron variant
  • It experienced supply chain issues as a result of the Omicron variant
  • It suffered cancellations as a result of the Omicron variant
  • It was impacted by Omicron, but is not eligible for the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant

In order to be eligible, your business must:

  • Be able to evidence the impact of Omicron on your business via cancellations, loss of stock, closures due to illness, etc
  • Have been trading on 30 December 2021

Cllr Hilary Bastone, South Hams Executive Member for Economy, said: “The quick spread of the Omicron strain of COVID-19 in the final months of 2021 had widespread consequences for all kinds of businesses across the South Hams.

“This new grant will hopefully help bridge the gap on lost revenue from the tail end of last year, including for those who are not eligible for other grants.

“I would urge business owners in the South Hams to look into the ARGO, see if they are eligible and apply.”
 
Applications for the grant must be submitted by 18 March 2022. Payments will be made by 31 March. There is a simple online application form for businesses to fill in to apply. Visit https://southhams.gov.uk/ARGO to find out more.
