"Ensuring our tourism and arts sectors have the supports to help them survive the pandemic is a key priority for Government. It is vital these businesses continue operating and are ready to reopen their doors to help in our recovery, when the time comes. The CRSS helps maintain those crucial financial foundations, assisting hotels, restaurants, and arts venues, while their business are curtailed and restricted for public health reasons. This scheme, negotiated in the Budget, provides rebates, to a maximum weekly payment of €5,000 to facilities temporarily closed or restricted because of the virus. I want to ensure that, while tourism is struggling now, it continues to be a driver of recovery in the future, while arts venues very much need this financial lifeline."
