How to apply for a grant from the ITF Seafarers’ Trust Covid-19 Welfare Fund

What is the ITF Seafarers’ Trust Covid-19 Welfare Fund?

The ITF Seafarers’ Trust Covid-19 Fund is an extraordinary fund established for a limited period to provide grants to benefit seafarers and maintain seafarers’ welfare services in difficulties due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its financial consequences.

The fund has two main purposes:

  • to facilitate fast grant payments for specific projects to alleviate hardship, stress and isolation of seafarers and their families
  • to provide funds for the maintenance of seafarers’ welfare services during the period of instability caused by Covid-19 and the measures taken to combat the virus

Grants are for emergency needs arising from the unique circumstances created by Covid-19 that cannot be met by other means.

Grants matched or co-funded by other organisations are encouraged.

Global and inter-faith cooperation and coordination is also encouraged.

Regional, national and global solutions are more likely to be supported.
