Community action funding
What funding is there to support community action?
Devon County Council (DCC) has launched the COVID-19 Prompt Action Fund to help provide valuable funding to organisations working in their local communities during this outbreak.
Through the COVID-19 Action Fund, DCC will rapidly provide small amounts of grant funding to community-led schemes.
These can include:
- Safe deliveries of essential goods and services to those who are vulnerable, such as foods and medicines
- Support for accessing online information and services
- Virtual support groups to help people to stay connected and informed and to maintain and support mental health and wellbeing
- Transport-related initiatives that support safe community responses to the outbreak
There are two separate grants available through the Fund; one of less than £500 and one of between £500 and £5,000.
How can I apply for funding from the Prompt Action Fund?
