New COVID programme – Accommodation

COVID – Accommodation support will be paid to applicants based on the standard of accommodation provided; the maximum aid will amount to CZK 330 per room and night and applies to the most luxurious types of accommodation such as five or four-star hotels, motels and boatels. Camping providers will be entitled to CZK 100. Support is not intended for short-term leases such as Airbnb.

The ministry plans to announce a call for this type of support and provide access to applications during August. First of all, however, it will be necessary to obtain the European Commission’s notification currently in progress. As in the case of COVID – Rent, applications will be filed via on-line forms. Administration of support will be the responsibility of the State Fund of Investment Support.

In practice, the seasonality of accommodation services will also be taken into account; for example, if a facility was closed sometime in the last two years, it will not be entitled to this type of support or the support may be proportionately reduced. We will let you know more details once the call is announced.
