TAP-INTO grants can now support member costs related to COVID-19

In response to the pandemic, INTO is launching a special funding round. 

Funds are available to cover unexpected new costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The maximum grant available is £2,500. INTO expects to make between eight and ten grants.

Recipients must be full members of INTO in good standing. Associate members and candidate members are not eligible in this round, but may be eligible in a second round if we have remaining resources.

Please read the guidance below for information on eligibility of costs and the grants timeline.


Funding can be claimed for new costs associated with the pandemic.

This may include:

  • New hardware to allow home working (laptops, printers, etc.)
  • New software subscriptions to facilitate home working (Zoom, Blue Jeans etc.)
  • New costs associated with closing sites (signage, barriers etc.)
  • New costs associated with plans for re-opening (signage, hand sanitiser etc.)
  • Other new costs associated with the impact of the pandemic.

Grants will be paid in arrears. Salary costs are not eligible for this funding round.

We appreciate that many INTO members have already incurred some of these costs. You may therefore claim costs that you have already spent, as long as these are related to the pandemic.

If we receive more applications than we can support, we will prioritise the applications according to the severity of the need, expressed in the ‘statement of need’ in the application. We reserve the right to make partial awards.

We wish to be as flexible as possible with this funding. For any further questions, please contact a member of the INTO team or send an email to our general inbox using
