Grant Funding Available to the Charity Sector for The EU Settlement Scheme03-Jan-2019
The Government has recently announced the launch of charity funding to help vulnerable or at-risk EU citizens that need additional support when applying for the European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS).
The Government say making sure that vulnerable or at-risk EU citizens and their families are supported to obtain a status is a critical objective in the delivery of the EUSS.
£9 Million of grant funding is being made available to charities, NGO’s and similar organisations to provide support and assistance to vulnerable or at-risk EU citizens when applying for the EUSS.
The Home Office intends to create a network of funded organisations to make sure that a range of services are prepared across the UK, so that support and assistance to apply for the EUSS is available to meet those who require the most support to apply.
It has been announced that there will be two levels of award:
- Level one - to fund grant projects from £5,000 up to £39,999; and
- Level two - to fund grant projects from £40,000 up to £750,000.
Opened recently, the deadline for bids will close at midday on Friday 1st February 2019.
