The Coronavirus Community Support Fund (CCSF), closes at 12 noon on 17 August 2020. The National Lottery aim to finish distributing these funds by the end of October 2020.
After this, you can still apply for emergency National Lottery funded grants in England to help your community through COVID-19. The National Lottery will be focusing on funding for organisations supporting people and communities who experience disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, specifically for user-led equality groups supporting:
- black, Asian, minority ethnic and refugee (BAMER) communities
- lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer + (LGBTQ+) communities
- disabled people.
This is for six months’ emergency funding, for small and medium organisations and for between £300 and £100K.
Other National Lottery funding will be available again later this year.
Beyond the emergency response, National Lottery funding to support communities in England will be available, and we’ll keep you updated on our funding as it develops.
