The Club-house Subsidy Scheme opened for applications today to provide immediate financial relief to Certificate of Compliance (CoC) holders whose businesses have been directly affected by the Government’s anti-epidemic and social distancing measures.
A subsidy of $50,000 will be given to eligible holders of a valid CoC issued under the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance, and an additional $25,000 for CoC holders who also operate karaoke establishments, nightclubs or bars/pubs in their clubhouse premises.
Existing holders of CoCs with validity falling within any period since July 11, 2020 when the relevant directions issued pursuant to the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation are in effect may apply.
The application form and guidelines can be downloaded from the website of the Office of the Licensing Authority under the Home Affairs Department.
Upon receipt of the completed application form and supporting documents, subsidies could generally be disbursed in around two weeks.
The application deadline is October 30.
