The COVID-19 Community Support Fund will provide small grants to local community and voluntary organisations to deal with emerging issues as a result of the continuing threat of Coronavirus.
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is opening a fourth tranche of the Covid-19 Community Support Fund, as a result of additional funds made available from Department for Communities.
The purpose of the COVID-19 Community Support Fund is to provide small grants to local community and voluntary organisations to deal with emerging issues in local communities as a result of the continuing threat of coronavirus.
The online hub will be accepting applications from 10 Am on 07/09/2020. Applications should be submitted online via Council's Online Funding Hub. You can access the online hub by clicking here
Only those applications which provide an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be considered. We expect a high number of applications to the fund. Council will review the number of applications received and the number of awards being made on a daily basis. The fund will close as soon as the available funds are allocated. Council reserve the right to close the fund at short notice.
Organisations can apply for up to £3,000 to support actions in line with the following interventions:
- Financial - to those on low income and at risk due to financial stress
- Food - access to food (whether due to cost or availability) for those most in need
- Connectivity - to those living alone or in in rural and border areas that are likely to experience greater challenges in accessing services
Full guidance notes and a Vulnerable Adult Policy/Safeguarding Policy Statement Template are both provided below.
