Amusement places subsidy set

May 5, 2020

A scheme that provides a $100,000 one-off subsidy to licensed billiard establishments, public bowling alleys and skating rinks opened for applications today.


The Places of Amusement Licence Holders Subsidy Scheme aims to provide immediate financial relief to eligible licence holders whose businesses have been hard-hit by the COVID-19 epidemic and the Government’s social distancing measures.


Holders of a valid Places of Amusement Licence issued under the Places of Amusement Regulation on March 28, 2020, are eligible to apply.


They should submit their applications to the Licensing & Prosecution Unit under the Leisure & Cultural Services Department. Subsidy disbursements could generally be made in around two weeks upon submission of the completed application form and supporting documents.


The application deadline is May 30.


The application form and guidelines will be sent to each licence holder by mail. They can also be obtained from the Licensing & Prosecution Unit at the Leisure & Cultural Services Headquarters in Sha Tin.
