Coronavirus Financial Assistance Fund

If your household income has been directly impacted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, you may be eligible for a grant from our Coronavirus Financial Assistance Fund, available from 1st April 2021.

The fund is available to Kingdom Housing Association tenants and Kingdom Initiative tenants and is aimed at providing short-term financial assistance to those experiencing critical/emergency financial hardship, particularly as a result of changes in employment due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The grants awarded from the fund can be used to help with the cost of food, utility or other household bills, transport or travel costs, children or baby clothes and accessories or to assist with loss of earnings from employment.

Are there any restrictions?     

  • First application (per household) is eligible for funding up to £250 which includes applications made from the first fund.
  • Second application: If an applicant has previously received support from the Coronavirus Assistance Fund and has a new change in circumstances, they may apply again 6 months or more after their first application. 
  • Second fund payment will be paid at 50% of the eligible value based on the fund criteria.
