£3.3million Voluntary, Community and Social Economy Sector COVID Recovery Fund launched

The Communities Minister for Northern Ireland, Carál Ní Chuilín, has launched the £3.3million Voluntary, Community and Social Economy Sector (VCSE) COVID Recovery Fund, to help organisations with the extra costs of returning to premises and to safely deliver services. It will assist with things like PPE and moving services online.

Groups can apply for awards of up to £5,000 for both past expenditure and future needs. The new fund will be administered by Co-operation Ireland in partnership with the Rural Community Network. It is open for applications between 12 November and 11 December 2020 (4.00 p.m.)
