Applications for Sheffield City Council’s Outdoor Hospitality Grant will open on Tuesday 18 May and apply to those businesses already open for outdoor hospitality and for businesses planning to open outdoor spaces, but have not yet done so.
Businesses must be from the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, and entertainment sectors and be able to demonstrate an outdoor hospitality offer.
The money will be given out on a first come, first served basis, with no mention of the total pot of cash available from Sheffield City Council. Owners have been encouraged to apply early for payments of between £1,000 and £3,000, which will be awarded to cover either 100 per cent of costs or to part-fund larger costs up to a maximum total spend of £20,000.
