Ofcom have announced the emergency cash funding to support stations facing severe financial difficulty due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The Community Radio Fund helps to fund the core costs of running Ofcom-licensed community radio stations.
There is a short application window, as the closing date for applications is 5pm Monday May 11, with applications being considered by panel later that month. This allows for emergency funding to be accessed as soon as possible.
Grants can only be made to community radio licensees in the UK, who are broadcasting under a community radio licence.
