The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Charitable Foundation aims to improve private rented housing standards. Through its grants programme, the Foundation is looking to support bids which promote knowledge of landlord’s obligations or tenant’s rights and responsibilities.
Charitable organisations including housing associations and CICs can apply to one of three funding streams:
- A national funding stream for larger projects with national impact (c £50,000 per project);
- an innovation fund to enable those riskier projects to be funded (c £25,000 per project); and
- a community stream for local projects (c £10,000 per project).
The next deadline for applications to the TDS is 5pm on 14th June 2018.
