Many local councils are bringing their application deadlines for the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grants forward.
If you are hoping to apply for the Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant (OHLG) which we mentioned in our 13 January email, it is important that you keep an eye on your local council websites. Application deadlines have been brought forward by some local authorities to give them time to process and determine grants before the 28 February 2022.
Having checked the websites of councils local to ourselves, we can confirm that application deadlines have been set as early as 31 January by some.
