The National Lottery Community Fund has announced that its Awards for All England funding programme will remain open to all applications but, for the next six months, will prioritise applications from voluntary and community groups that need help to respond to Covid-19. Grants of between £300 to £10,000 will be available to existing grant-holders and is available to help with costs such as running costs, equipment, one-off events, staff and training costs, and transport etc. Applications which involve the community in the design, development and delivery of the projects will be more likely to succeed. Groups may hold up to a maximum of two awards within a 12-month period. Applications will be dealt with more quickly than normal and can be made at any time. Click here
