Applications open for Infrastructure Organisations to support BAME-led charities and groups to access National Emergencies Trust (NET) funds

The coronavirus crisis is disproportionately hurting our Black, Asian and from minority ethnic (BAME) communities. 

BAME-led organisations in the West of England play a pivotal role in ensuring that vital emergency funds reach our hard-hit communities.

This week UK Community Foundations (UKCF) launches a new infrastructure fund available for organisations that can help more BAME-led organisations apply for NET grants through their local Community Foundations. An initial £250,000 has been allocated for this purpose, with more funds anticipated on a rolling basis.

Grants between £5,000 – £20,000 over a maximum of three months are available. Please note that UKCF define a BAME-led organisation under the following terms issued by the Race Equalities Funders Alliance:

The panel will award grants as applications are received from an open call on a rolling basis. UKCF will administer this fund and make the grant payments.
