Part of the National Lottery Community Fund, this Scheme is offering grants up to £100,000 to community organisations facing financial difficulties caused by Covid-19.

It’s aimed at organisations working in their local community to:

  • help people and communities experiencing disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 crisis
  • provide services and support for vulnerable people, for which there will be increased demand as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

There is an emphasis on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME)-led or BAME-supporting businesses.

First stage applications need to be made to indicate whether the key criteria are met, with stage 2 applications requiring more details and evidence.

The next two rounds for stage 1 applications are open between 10:00 and 13:00 on Tuesday 4 August and Tuesday 11 August.
