How Will the Money Be Divided?
Rishi Sunak has only just announced this package (8th April) so little details are yet know. However he has made it clear that £360 million of this money will be directly allocated to ‘frontline’ charities providing key services and supporting vulnerable people during the crisis.
370 million will be allocated to charities working within local communities, focussing on those delivering food, essential medicines and offering financial advice.
How Can Charities Apply For or Benefit from the Coronavirus Grants?
Few details are known at this stage, but the government has said:
‘Departments will now work at pace to identify priority recipients, with the aim for charities to receive money in the coming weeks. The application system for the National Lottery Community Fund grant pot is expected to be operational within a similar period of time. ‘
