The changes to the criteria are as below:
Applications are encouraged to support communities through to recovery. This is likely to include local groups and organisations who:
• Are looking to provide essential support and services to directly facilitate in the recovery efforts from Covid-19.
• Have lost significant core income over the past few months and request funding to recover quicker financially.
Temporary changes to the funding criteria:
• No match funding will be required for all applications at this time.
• Re-application restrictions have been lifted. Any groups that have previously received a grant, have a live project or have been unsuccessful in the last round may re-apply.
The changes relate to all applications to the 23 September 2020 and 14 April 2021 closing dates only. All other criteria will remain unchanged.
