Local projects set to receive further Tampon Tax funding

HCF will once again be delivering the Tampon Tax Community Fund in Hertfordshire as part of the UKCF network of Community Foundations

Small charities and community groups working with some of society’s most vulnerable women and girls are set to receive a much-needed funding boost thanks to a further round of Tampon Tax Community Fund grants.

UK Community Foundations has been awarded £3,545,000 by Government to distribute a further round of funding through its network of Community Foundations that work all over the UK.

Over 400 groups were awarded a grant between £5,000-£10,000 from the first round of funding. Community Foundations were oversubscribed with applications in every area of the UK.

Welcoming the announcement, Hertfordshire Community Foundation Director Helen Gray said:
“This is brilliant news for local groups and we are delighted to be able to once again deliver this vital funding in Hertfordshire. In the previous round of funding HCF was able to support some fantastic local projects tackling huge issues like mental health, unemployment and domestic abuse. But demand is growing and we know there were many worthy projects that we were not able to fund in the previous round. We look forward to communicating application details soon”.

Funding will be available for groups across the UK and further details of how to apply will be available over the coming months.
