£1m Coronavirus Response Fund
Posted on 22/06/2020
NatWest Social and Community Capital have launched a £1m Coronavirus Response Fund to help bridge the income gap so that organisations survive the crisis and continue to have a positive impact in their communities.
The fund offers grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 to organisations across the UK that employ people from vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. These grants are unrestricted and can be used for any purpose, including core costs. Organisations must have an annual turnover between £50,000 and £1 million, must have been generating at least 30% of revenue from trading income before the crisis and must have suffered a loss in trading income due to lockdown restrictions.
Applications are open from today (Monday 22 June) and will stay open for at least one week.
Full information on the grants, including the application form and how to apply can be found here.
