Government's small charity coronavirus fund to close

Due to high demand, the Government-funded Coronavirus Community Support Fund has announced it will be closing for applications at 12noon on Monday 17 August 2020.

The £200 million fund, which opened in May, is part of the Government's £750 million financial support package for charities and social enterprises in England and is managed by the National Lottery Community Fund. So far, It has awarded £55 million to over 2,300 organisations and received applications totalling almost £130 million.

If your organisation is planning to apply for the fund, you can access the application form here (you will need to register for an account, if you haven't done so already). It's predicted that funds should finish being awarded through the National Lottery by the end of October (2020).

If you no longer plan on applying for this funding, all applications that are still in progress and haven't been submitted by the August deadline will be deleted and you won't be able to access unsubmitted applications after this time.

Further details on how the lottery can continue to support community organisations through COVID-19 can be found here.
