EU Settlement Scheme Grant Funding
£9 million of grant funding for voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations and SME’s willing to support vulnerable EU citizens and their family members with making their EUSS applications.
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.
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.
The key outcome is for those funded to provide practical application support to vulnerable EU citizens and their family members.
Bids will close at 12pm (noon) on 01 February 2019
