The National Lottery Community Fund has issued a press release in relation to funding support during the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to supporting existing grant holders, they have now decided that funding decisions for the next six months (up to £300m) will be devoted to addressing the current crisis. They are also intending to accelerate the cash part of this funding as much as they can, so that the money can get to where it needs to be.

Their funding priorities
  • Activities specifically geared to supporting communities through this crisis.
  • Helping organisations overcome any liquidity issues caused by Covid-19.
