The Consortium for stronger LGBT+ Communities has announced that due to an overwhelming demand, the LGBT+ Futures Grant Programme is now closed for applications, except those organisations based in Wales or Northern Ireland. The aim of the grant is to address the additional needs of LGBT+ people and communities most adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and to support and strengthen LGBT+ organisations that have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The funding is available to non-profit groups, organisations or projects that work with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans + (LGBT+) people.
Eligible organisations can apply through two funding programmes:
- Small grants programme for grants up to £5,000
- Main Grants programme for grants of between £5,001 and £15,00
The grants are likely to be awarded towards ongoing work, core costs and additional work which strengthens the position of organisations and their ability to respond to community needs at this challenging time.
The funding is being made available through the LGBT+ Futures Grant Programme and is financially supported by the National Emergencies Trust.
There are no deadlines for this fund. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until all the funding has been awarded. Grants are for short-term work only and all funds awarded through the programme must be fully spent by 31 May 2021.
