Your local council will aim to process your application within 3 working days. But some councils are dealing with a high number of applications and it might take longer.
After the council checks your information they will contact you to let you know if you can get the grant. This is usually by letter.
Paying the grant
The council will pay the £500 into your bank account.
If you have any queries about your payment or your application you should contact your local council.
