COVID-19 funding in England update

COVID-19 funding in England update

The following provides an update on the Coronavirus Community Support Fund (CCSF) in England, launched on 22nd May.

To date,  they have received over 10,000 applications to the CCSF. Of the £200m allocated by Government, they have now awarded funding of almost £55 million to over 2,300 organisations in England, helping communities during this difficult time.

Whilst continuing to award funding, they have also been keeping a close eye on the level of demand, with applications totalling almost £130 million currently being assessed by their funding teams.

To ensure they can meet as many of these requests as possible, they will be closing the Government allocation of the funding to new applications at noon on 17 August. They will continue to assess applications that they have received before this date.

While this important Government funding is coming to an end, National Lottery funding to support communities in England will continue to be available.

Further details on how they can continue to support you through COVID-19 can be found at
