Home Office EUSS Grant Funding to be available in May:
On Friday 6 March 2020, the Home Office announced a further £8 million of funding to help vulnerable EU citizens apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) for the 2020-2021 financial year.
The new £8 million of funding will ensure that those who are the most vulnerable continue to receive a wide range of support online, over the phone and in person to help them apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.
The bidding process for this funding will be launched in early May 2020. In light of COVID-19, the Home Office has decided to extend the competitive bidding process to allow a longer period of time for bids to be submitted.
Funding will be available to Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations willing to support vulnerable EU citizens and their family members with making EUSS applications.
Funding will also be available across the UK for Local Authorities (LAs) and local government associations or organisations providing support services (or equivalents in the Devolved Administrations).
The Home Office is making a level of continuity funding available to the existing 57 Grant-Funded Organisations through to the end of September 2020. As a result, the competitive bidding process will be for up to £4.5 million and will initially cover the period 1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021.
