Councils across Gloucestershire, South Glos and Bristol open applications for Gov SME grants

Grants-of-up-to-6-000-per-site-to-ease-Omicron-blues

Businesses in the hospitality and leisure sector can apply for grants to claim up to £6,000 to help mitigate some of the losses incurred by pandemic and the new omicron variant.

Many of the councils have also given an update on the discretionary fund (ARG) they have to help those outside of these sectors so that is also worth checking on the links below.

All the councils are operating independently and their deadlines to apply for the grants can vary so make sure you know the vital dates for your council as soon as possible.

To find out who can apply for the Government-backed grants – and what those deadlines are – for information visit your specific council weblink below.
