National Lottery Community Fund have launched a £200m fund aimed primarily at small to medium organisations in England. The fund is part of the Government’s £750m financial support package for charities and social enterprises announced by Government on April 8. They’ll distribute the Government funding alongside National Lottery funding, to support organisations to continue to deliver services to people and communities affected by COVID-19. This means they will prioritise applications from:
- organisations supporting people who are at high risk from COVID-19
- organisations supporting communities most likely to face increased demand and challenges as a direct result of COVID-19
- organisations which connect communities and support communities to work together to respond to COVID-19.
Full information has been published on the National Lottery Community Fund on learning about applying for emergency COVID-19 funding in England.
Please note that Awards for All and Reaching Communities funding is not open.
