    Created: 28/02/2023
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance


    The Household Hardship Fund is a fund provided by the National Lottery Community Fund and administered by Corra Foundation. The purpose of the Fund is to provide small grants to charities and community groups across Scotland who can pass the funding on to families and individuals on low incomes. This funding is to be used to provide cash payments/vouchers to families and individuals in need of extra support.

    Examples of what cash payments or vouchers could cover:

    • food/essential items
    • fuel costs
    • phone/internet costs
    • warm clothing
    • other essentials that you can show are needed by the people you support

    All funds must be passed on to families and individuals by 30 June 2023.

    Who can apply

    The Fund aims to reach groups who:

    • Have strong local relationships with people in the community.
    • Are already supporting people in their communities on low incomes.
    • Have an income of under £100,00*

    *If your group is a food bank or pantry, or runs a project that distributes free food or meals to the community, you can apply even if your income is over £100,000.

    If you are not a food bank or pantry, but are a branch of a larger organisation that has a higher income, you may still be eligible to apply if your branch: has an annual income under £100,000 AND has its own bank account in its own name AND produces its own annual accounts AND has a local management committee that runs the local organisation.

    When to apply

    Applications close on 10 March 2023.

    How to apply

    Complete the online application form on the Corra Foundation website.
