EU Settlement Grants Scheme Now Open – 1st February 2019 (UK)

When the UK exits the EU, EU citizens living in the UK and their family members will need to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) to obtain their new UK immigration status. To help vulnerable EU citizens and their family members to make their EUSS applications, the Home Office has allocated up to £9 million of grant funding to award to voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations willing to support this process.

Organisations can only bid once for projects costing between £5,000 up to £39,999 or projects between £40,000 up to £750,000. The competition is an online process. No grant amount is specified.

Grants awarded will be used to ensure that those who require the most support to apply to the EUSS can access it. The Home Office aims to ensure grants are awarded across the UK and to organisations that work with a diversity of at-risk groups.

Funding will be for one year from 1st April 2019, and all funding must be spent within the 2019/20 financial year.

Bids will close at 12pm (noon) on 1st February 2019.
