- Small grants of up to £5,000.
- Medium grants up to £10,000.
- Large grants of up to £15,000.
The funding is to be used for projects that address the impacts that the COVID-19 crisis has had on LGBTQ+ people.
Organisations have until July 2021 to spend the grants.
The deadlines for applications are 22 September 2020 for micro/small grants and 30 September 2020 for medium/large grants.
