Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant
The Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant is now closed for applications.
We have received a high number of applications and the team are now processing these.
Once your application has been processed and we have all the information we need (we may need to contact you to clarify some information), you will receive notification of when to expect the grant support payment.
It is anticipated payments to successful businesses will be made as soon as is reasonably practicable after a decision has been made and the grant acceptance form has been returned. Due to the number of grants we have received, and the resources required to assess each application it may take some time for a decision to be made. If you have not heard after four weeks please contact email@example.com. We ask that you do not contact the Council in advance of this time period.
Our Customer Connect team are experiencing an incredibly high number of calls. If you have any queries regarding the scheme please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will respond as soon as is reasonably practical.
