Apply: VCSE Covid Recovery Fund 25 January 2021

On behalf of the Department for Communities (DfC), Co–operation Ireland in partnership with Rural Community Network announces the re–opening of the VCSE Covid Recovery Fund.

Following the closure of the first phase of the Fund in December 2020, a review has identified that funds remain available that would allow for the purchase of PPE and other sundry items to enable the re–opening and/ or continued delivery of vital community services. With potential for future PPE funding opportunities limited, this provides an opportunity for the Sector to make new or additional applications to help organisations plan ahead and ensure their premises are ready to deliver services as soon as Covid restrictions are relaxed.

This phase of the Fund, which opens for applications at 10.00 am on Monday 18 January 2021, is to ensure that VCSE organisations have the sufficient PPE required to continue service delivery. Groups can apply for awards up to £5,000 for purchase of PPE. Organisations who were previously successful in applying to this element of the fund can reapply to receive up to £5,000 (e.g. if an organisation was awarded £2,000 from the 1st phase of applications, they can apply for a further £3,000).

The Key Features of the Fund are:

  • Grants of up to £5,000 are available to voluntary, community or social economy organisations
  • Open for applications between 18th January – 29th January 2021 (4.00 p.m.)
  • Applications must be submitted using the online application process
  • Funding must be spent by 31 March 2021

The Fund will be open to applications from Monday 18th January (10.00 a.m.)  to Friday 29th January 2021 (4.00 p.m.)
