PAUSED: CAF Coronavirus Emergency Fund – LAST DAY TO APPLY

| Return|

CAF has suddenly paused the fund because ‘the need for the fund is greater than anyone expected’. In one week, CAF has already received requests for more than £20 million of support and are assessing these as quickly and as fairly as possible:

  • Organisations that have already applied will receive email notifications as soon as their decisions are confirmed.

  • Organisations that have their applications in progress must submit these by 5pm on Monday 6 April. CAF reports that it will not be able to respond to email requests for support. The online application form is available on the CAF website.

CAF hopes to expand the fund and reopen it as and when there is additional money which can be granted to organisations.

The Fund will stop accepting applications on Monday 6 April at 5.00pm
