The Government will launch the Subsidy Scheme for Beauty Parlours, Massage Establishments & Party Rooms under the second round of the Anti-epidemic Fund on May 11.


A sum of $1.1 billion has been earmarked for the scheme, which is expected to benefit 12,400 beauty parlours and massage establishments as well as 500 party rooms.


The subsidy is expected to be disbursed from late this month.


Under the scheme, each eligible beauty parlour or massage establishment will receive a one-off tiered subsidy of $30,000, $60,000 or $100,000, depending on its number of workers.


Each eligible party room will receive a one-off subsidy of $40,000.


Applications will only be accepted online. The application deadline is May 17.


The scheme also covers premises which are operated by social enterprises.


For premises with business registration, social enterprise operators should file their applications through the online application system.


Those without business registration should directly approach the Hong Kong Council of Social Service at 2864 2993 or by email to obtain its certification and submit their applications.
