As part of their response to Covid-19, the Lloyds Bank Foundation has launched a new Infrastructure Fund. A total of £480,000 is available to support local and regional infrastructure organisations that provide organisational development support to and advocate for small and local charities.
The Foundation anticipate making 16 one-off grants of £30,000. Grants will be available for core costs and can be used over 1-2 years. 25% of the grants for this programme will be ring-fenced for infrastructure organisations that are specifically supporting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic-led charities and that are led by members of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
The funding will also be focused on areas in England and Wales particularly hard hit by Covid-19. (Please click on link below for details).
The closing date for application submission is 5 pm on the 9th October 2020. The application form is available on the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales (link below)
