Next deadline 1st February for decisions by week commencing 22nd March
In response to the second lockdown, TRCF have ring-fenced an amount of funding to enable them to make small grants of up to £1000 for emergency response needs to keep people fed and connected. They expect to turn these grants around quickly.
The Foundation are now moving into phase 3 of their funding strategy. They are thinking about the emerging needs of their communities as we all recover from the immediate crisis and start to deal with the ‘new normal’ and the resulting public health, social & economic crisis and its impact.
As funds are limited, in this phase,they will be moving back to prioritising applications from organisations with an annual income of under £500,000 based on current forecast annual income.
Applications must meet one of 5 themes based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and they are keen to shift to support the development of self sufficient and resilient communities by helping to support a solution rather than the symptoms of problems.
Funds are available for either project or running costs but work supported must be aimed at strengthening communities and/or strengthening the organisations that provide vital support to communities.
