Community First Yorkshire have been doing some research to try and understand which charities are eligible to receive the Small Business Grant Fund and which charities aren’t.
The Charity Tax Group have published a useful article which helps to explain the current situation and the work they are doing to increase the number of charities eligible to receive the grant.
The Charity Tax Group, with support from the Charity Finance Group, NCVO, the Small Charities Coalition, NAVCA and other local and community infrastructure charities, are asking the government to change the eligibility criteria for the Small Business Grants Fund to allow charities to make a claim where they are currently ineligible.
Community First Yorkshire are keeping a close eye on developments and will keep the sector informed via our ebulletins, social media and funding and financial support page on our website.
