Grants and Funding


Additional funds allocated through The National Lottery Community Fund

22 July 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

TNL has announced the distribution of £45mil to partner organisations through External Delegated Agreement’s (EDAs). In developing our Covid-19 crisis response we recognised that we could get support to some organisations and communities more quickly and efficiently by partnering with specialist organisations to distribute funding to them on our behalf.

• The vast majority of our emergency funding will still be distributed via our direct grant making as this is the quickest and easiest route for the groups we fund and the sector.

• We expect the funding to be heavily oversubscribed and anticipate only being able to support a proportion of applications.

Information about eligibility, how to apply, and further details, are available on each of the partnership’s websites. These follow the following themes:
