Grants range from £500 to £20,000. Registered charities can apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000. Other not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants of between £500 and £2,000.

The funding is for new projects, or significant expansions of existing projects, in Great Britain. The projects can be up to 12 months in length.

There is a two-stage application process. Stage 1 applications for this first round will be accepted from 21 January to 4 February 2020.

There will be a second application round later in the year.
