Grants from Homeless Link

Homeless Link is currently accepting applications to the COVID-19 Homelessness Response Fund to provide emergency funding during the pandemic. We are also administering several other funds. Find out more and apply for funding.

COVID-19 Homelessness Response Fund

The COVID-19 Homelessness Response Fund provides emergency funding to support homelessness organisations directly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

We are pleased to announce that we are extending the deadline for applications for the fund, which was due to close on 14 September.  This extension will give homelessness organisations one final opportunity to apply for grant funding to adapt or expand services in light of COVID-19. The closing date for applications is now 28 September 2020.

Round 1: The first tranche of £6 million from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, opened on 14 May 2020, and in early June over 130 grants were awarded.

Round 2: A second tranche of £5.5 million was announced on 13 July 2020, and is currently open for applications. Of this funding pot, £4.82 million is provided by The National Lottery Community Fund for charities in England, and a further £680,000 is from Comic Relief, and will primarily be allocated to charities based in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The deadline for the Comic Relief funding stream is 28 September 2020.

There are two deadlines for the National Lottery Community Fund funding stream: 3 August 2020 and 28 September 2020. Awards must be spent within six months of receipt of funds or by 19 April 2021.

Ending Women's Homelessness Grants Programme

Homeless Link was awarded £2 million by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), from the Homelessness strand of the Tampon Tax Fund, to deliver onward grants to charities working with women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in England. The grants have been distributed and the fund is now closed.
