In March, Pen y Cymoedd responded quickly to the impact of the pandemic and started offering grants and loans to organisations and businesses for emergency survival funding and project funding to respond to community needs.
Since them we have distributed over £530,000 in COVID response funding:
– £363,249.63 in Survival Funding to 51 community organisations and businesses
– £167,435.56 to 23 groups to run COVID response projects
As restrictions lift and people are assessing what life looks like we have suspended the COVID emergency funds. Pen y Cymoedd want to be sure that enough of the fund is available later in the year and early into 2021 to support those existing businesses and organisations that will need support.
The Micro Fund and Vision Fund remain open and we encourage people to make contact with the staff team to discuss funding opportunities.
