There have been important changes in the administration of two funds that many refugee community organisations (RCOs) have successfully applied to in the past.
1) The income threshold for groups applying to Grassroots Grants has increased from £20,000 to £30,000 per year.
2) Following a review of the Awards for All England programme, the small grants scheme’s existing format will change from 1 April 2009. Each of the lottery distributors supporting the scheme will have their own small grants programmes, which means that each distributor can better address the needs of their applicants. The programme will retain its current broad eligibility, covering a wide variety of projects.
