Aims/priorities: The Infrastructure Fund is provided and administered by Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales as part of their response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis as organisations move into the 'recovery and rebuild' phase and 'build back better'. The one-off funding is intended to support regional and local infrastructure organisations that advocate for their small and local charity members. The support is for charities tackling complex social issues. The funding aims to provide some space for infrastructure organisations to reflect and adapt to the new environment, through their advocacy work but also developing their financial sustainability.
Who can apply? Applications will be considered from registered charities that are infrastructure organisations operating at a regional or local level. At least four of the grants will be made to infrastructure organisations that support Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic organisations.
Grant amount: £30,000 will be awarded.
Application process: The guidance notes and online application form can be found on the Lloyds Bank Foundation website.
Deadline: The first step is to fill out the online application form by 5pm on 9 October 2020. Those who are successful at Stage 1 will be invited to an online / telephone interview which will take place between 4 and 20 November 2020.
