Local homelessness organisations that require emergency financial assistance can apply for grants of up to £100,000 to the COVID-19 Homelessness Response Fund. A total funding pot of £5.5 million is available.
The funding aims to provide emergency financial assistance to local homeless organisations, preventing closure, service cuts or staff redundancies threatened by increased operational costs and a loss of fundraised income due to the Coronavirus. It will also support organisations that have needed to expand or adapt their services in light of COVID-19 to support people experiencing homelessness safely and effectively.
The funding is available to organisations with a turnover of less than £5 million per year. There is now one funding stream – National Lottery Funding.
