COVID-19: The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust COVID-19 Impact Fund

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust COVID-19 Impact Fund is a new £6 million fund provided by the Ministry of Defence with the aim of ensuring that Armed Forces communities can continue to access important services, particularly where resources for these services have been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Grants can cover staff time, the cost of delivering the services online or remotely as a result of Covid-19 restrictions, and reasonable overheads that reflect the cost to the organisation of delivering this service. 

The Fund is offering grants of up £60,000 for charities and Community Interest Companies working with Armed Forces communities that have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The application deadline is 12 noon on Friday 29 May 2020.

Further information, guidance notes and an online application form can be found on the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust's website: https://covenantfund.org.uk/programme/covid-19-impact-programme/
