The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport’s Coronavirus Community Support Fund awards grants of up to £100,000 to support small to medium-sized organisations in England through the next six months.

The Fund will priorities projects that:

  1. support people and communities who experience disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 crisis;
  2. provide services and support for vulnerable people, for which there will be increased demand as a result of the COVID-19 crisis; and
  3. connect communities and support communities to work together to respond to COVID-19.

Government funding will be used to fund organisations in the first two objectives, National Lottery funding will be used to fund organisations in the last category. But the application process is the same, so you don’t need to worry about this.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme until funds are spent. Applications will be assessed on the order they are received so it is recommended you submit your application as soon as possible.
