The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Charitable Foundation has launched the latest round of funding for groups looking to educate and improve standards in the private rented sector.
The foundation has given away £460,000 so far and applications for the eleventh round of funding are now open until Thursday, June 14.
There are three bands of funding for which groups can apply for: a national project with national impact, an innovation fund for new projects to be created, and a community level for local initiatives.
Professor Martin Partington, chairman of the TDS Charitable Foundation, said the organisation hopes to break through the half a million-pound barrier this time round.
He said: “The PRS is often difficult to navigate, which is why we are committed to supporting projects, people and groups who aim to make a positive difference to the sector.
“It’s vital that both landlords and tenants across the country know their rights and responsibilities if we want to raise standards.
“We are actively supporting organisations who have projects or initiatives that share our goals.
“I’d encourage anyone that educates and informs tenants, landlords or agents to apply.”
