If you’re planning to apply for the Government allocation of funding being distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund via the Coronavirus Community Support Fund (CCSF), you must apply by 12 noon on 17 August 2020. The fund will close on this date.
After this, you can still apply for emergency National Lottery funded grants in England to help your community through COVID-19. However, after 17 August, the National Lottery Community Fund will be focusing on funding for organisations supporting people and communities who experience disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, specifically for user-led equality groups supporting:
- black, Asian, minority ethnic and refugee (BAMER) communities
- lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer + (LGBTQ+) communities
- disabled people
This is for six months’ emergency funding, for small and medium organisations and for between £300 and £100K. Other National Lottery funding will be available again later this year. The National Lottery Community Fund is also working with specialist partners to reach specific groups as quickly as they can.
Apply by 17 August 2020 for:
Government funding to support organisations in the delivery of services to people and communities affected by COVID-19. Funds can also help organisations overcome any acute financial difficulties they face as a result of the pandemic.
