In the ten days since opening the ARG on Monday 1 February, we've received over 1,300 applications. Due to the high volume of applications being received daily, we will be closing the ARG application process on Monday 15 February at 5pm. This will give our team time to review and process the applications. 

From the start of the process, we have been clear that demand for support is likely to outstrip the funding available, which is already the case with the quantity of applications we have received. We are prioritising the allocation of this funding carefully. We will be assessing the demand and allocations, with a focus on paying priority sectors first before looking at what support may be available for applications from other sectors. 

If you have already applied for the ARG, please be patient and wait for us to contact you - we are working as fast as we can. 

We'll provide further updates on this soon.
