Two new funding rounds from UK Aid Direct have opened today. Both the Community Partnership and Impact grants have opened for small to medium organisations who can demonstrate that they will be using the funding to achieve the Global Goals of UK Aid Direct, at the same time addressing the long-term impact of Covid-19 in developing countries. The deadline for both grants is 30 June 2020 and a webinar with guidance for applications will be hosted on 28 May at 12:30pm (UK time). Organisations looking to attend the guidance webinar should register online.

The Community Partnership grant is for funding up to £250,000 for projects which last three years or less and the Impacts grant is for funding of between £250,001 and £4,000,000 for projects which will last between three and five years. Both grants have to be for projects in eligible countries
