Deadline 1st February
EU citizens living in the UK and their family members will need to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) to obtain their new UK immigration status as the UK exits the EU.
The Home Office has up to £9 million of grant funding to be awarded to successful organisations in the FY19/20 through open and fair competition. The funding is available to bidders from the voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations willing to support vulnerable EU citizens and their family members with making their EUSS applications. Bidders should note they may bid only once, and their submission must fall into the Funding category of:
- Projects between £5,000 up to £39,999
- Projects between £40,000 up to £750,000
Ensuring that vulnerable or at-risk EU citizens and their families are supported to obtain a status is a critical objective. The Home Office is making funding available to mobilise services targeted at vulnerable EU citizens and their families, to ensure that those who require the most support to apply to the EUSS can access it.
