Coronavirus Strategic Capacity Scheme (Tourist Accommodation)

Thank you for your interest in the Coronavirus Strategic Capacity Scheme.

The Strategic Capacity Scheme was established in March 2020 to support Tourist Accommodation businesses through Round 1 (1st April until 30th June 2020) and Round 2 (1st July until 30th September 2020) funding periods with a focus on supporting “mothballing" and “local supply chain” costs.

The Scheme has been further extended to cover Round 3 funding (1st October until 31st December 2020) and Round 4 funding (1st January until 31st March 2021) which aims to provide support to eligible tourist accommodation businesses for fixed overheads over the winter months when trading may be difficult. 

The purpose of the Scheme is to provide financial assistance to Tourist Accommodation businesses. This is to ensure the Island retains its strategic tourist accommodation capacity during the COVID-19 crisis. The Scheme is intended to assist a more rapid recovery as the situation improves.

Applications for Round 1 and 2 will remain open until 31st October 2020. Any issues with submitted applications must be resolved by 30th November 2020.
