The fund aims to help organisations prepare a community share offer, to support their recovery from COVID-19. Grants available include:
Development grants – up to £5,000 to prepare a community share offer: financial planning, governance support, marketing costs and being awarded the Community Shares Standard Mark.
Match equity investment – typically matching pound for pound up to £25,000 invested by the Booster Programme, providing that the minimum share offer target is achieved.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and grant and investment decisions are made within eight weeks of application. For more information on how to apply, visit the website.
