The National Lottery Community Fund are prioritising applications that are COVID-19 related. 

All funding decisions made for the next six months will prioritise addressing the current crisis, and means the fund will prioritise applications from:  

  • Organisations supporting people who are at high risk from COVID-19
  • Organisations supporting communities most likely to face increased demand and challenges as a direct result of measures to prevent the result of COVID-19
  • Organisations with high potential to support communities with the direct and indirect impact of COVID-19  

In addition, the Reaching Communities programme will:

  • support organisations who fit the above priorities with funding for activities specifically geared to supporting communities through this crisis.
  • consider how they can support such organisations to respond to any acute financial difficulties they might face as a result of the crisis.
  • Grant amounts of £300 - £10,000 are available under the Awards for All programme
  • Grants of over £10,000 are available under the Reaching Communities programme
