The Office for Civil Society has announced the 727 organisations that have received a share of £81m of funding from the £107m Transition Fund.

The funding allocations mark the final major tranche of awards made under the scheme, after smaller rounds were announced in February and March. It takes the total amount awarded so far to £97.5m.

The department is not accepting further applications for funding and will announce the final recipients later in the summer.

A spokeswoman for the OCS said some leftover funding would be handed out if, as expected, a small number of charities that had been awarded funds said they were not eligible to accept the money because their circumstances had changed since they made the bid.

The Transition Fund was announced in the comprehensive spending review in October 2010 and is targeted at charities that have suffered as a result of cuts in public spending. Eligible organisations can receive up to £500,000 under the scheme.

In total, more than 900 charities have received support from the fund, which is being administered by the Big Lottery Fund.
