The Northamptonshire Community Foundation’s Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund (PHASE 3) is now open from Monday 12 October to support vital community projects in the county as they continue to respond to exceptional challenges over the coming months.
For those charitable groups well placed to take action, this additional funding aims to help them in their ongoing steps to provide the much needed essential support to the most vulnerable members of our community during this public health crisis.
We are now transitioning from the immediate relief phase to the longer term emergency phase; we will continue to award crisis response grants for immediate relief in anticipation of any return to lockdown as a result of a spike in infections.
We will also continue to award recovery response grants to help secure the finances of organisations that have lost income due to the crisis and are directly supporting vulnerable people experiencing hardship as a result of the crisis.
Funding will also support organisations to adapt their operations, services and working practices.
