Please log on to RankNet where you will find the application form under the ‘Opportunities’ tab. Please ensure you upload the additional documentation requirements in order for the application to be considered promptly.
At present, there is no deadline for the Covid-19 Recovery grant. The funding must have been granted, disbursed, and spent by 31st March 2021. We would encourage organisations to apply promptly to avoid disappointment.
My organisation is eligible for this fund, however the relevant member of staff (Development Manager, for example) is not a member of RankNet as they have not been involved with the previously Rank-funded project. How can they access the application form?
They will need to apply via a current RankNet member at their organisation.
All applications are via the RankNet members platform. If you think you are eligible for membership and require a login, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire. We would also recommend you check our RankNet Membership Policy.
A requirement of the DCMS grant is that priority is given to organisations operating in England. This does not completely exclude Scotland/NI/Wales but geographical location will be taken into consideration when deciding on grant distribution.
The project I would like to use the Recovery funding for will not require funding until later in 2021. Can I apply for the funds now to spend later?
No. The grant must have been spent by the 31st March 2021. We have monitoring and checks in place to ensure the funding has been spent.
Can I apply for this funding if I applied for Rank Emergency and Resilience Funding earlier in the year?
Yes. We are accepting applications irrespective of whether you were previously successful or not. This is a new and separate grant funding stream.
