Faith, Race and Hate Crime Grant Scheme 2020 to 2021

This grant scheme will support organisations that are working to bring different faith and ethnic groups together and tackle racially and religiously motivated hate crime to create integrated communities. These are places where people, whatever their background, live, work, learn and socialise together, based on shared rights, responsibilities and opportunities. The scheme will seek to promote shared values and integration, whilst tackling the harmful behaviours which lead to religiously and racially motivated hate crime. MHCLG has a budget of up to £2 million available to support this work.

They are looking for organisations and consortiums to bring funding proposals for consideration ahead of funding release in the 2020/21 financial year. Please note that this funding is only available for organisations and activities in England. Projects based outside England, including in the territories of the Devolved Administrations, will not be considered.

They are looking for established organisations to run a nine-month project that meets at least one of the following aims:

  • To promote shared values among people of all backgrounds through sustainable social integration and meaningful civic participation
  • To effectively tackle and prevent religiously and racially discriminatory behaviour and those acting against others because of their faith or race.
  • The deadline for applications is 23.50 on 17 April 2020.
