To apply, visit the Hospitality Action Website, and submit your application there.

All eligible grants who meet our criteria, will be processed on a ‘first come, first served basis’. and grants will be paid upon the next working day of being ‘approved and processed’.

HOWEVER, unfortunately the fund will only stretch so far and Hospitality Action have said that:

‘Once the fund expires we won’t be able to award more grants, but we will keep awarding as more funds are obtained. We expect the grant to be exhausted quickly.’
