first_imgNational Lottery Heritage Fund seeks applications for £100m Heritage Horizon Awards The National Lottery Heritage Fund is looking for applications from heritage organisations across the UK for its new Heritage Horizon Awards, worth £5million and over.The Heritage Horizon Awards will invest £100million over the next three years in ‘ambitious, innovative and transformational projects that will revolutionise UK heritage’.Applications from a full range of heritage are welcome and when making the awards, there will be a particular focus on The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s current strategic priorities: landscape and nature and heritage at risk.The minimum amount of grant is £5million with no upper limit on how much can be applied for. A total of £50m is available in the first year of the Awards (2020-2021). An Expression of Interest form must be submitted by 11 October 2019. National Lottery Heritage Fund CEO Ros Kerslake said:“This year we’re celebrating the 25th year of The National Lottery. We are tremendously excited about the next 25 years and this £100m is a hugely important step on that journey.”“It is no secret that demand for National Lottery funding for good causes far exceeds available funding and we thought long and hard about whether we could continue to invest in such large-scale projects.“When we consulted it was clear to us that if we stopped, it is unlikely that anyone else would be able to step in, and major, transformative heritage projects simply would not happen.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Burundi: Radio Isanganiro under pressure

first_img Receive email alerts News Reports Nsabiyabandi spent the afternoon at SNR headquarters being questioned about his supposed collaboration with Radi Inzamba and Humura, two Burundian exile radio stations based in neighbouring Rwanda.The SNR also accused him of not adhering to Radio Isanganiro’s established editorial policies and of stirring up public opinion and inciting revolt, without being able to mention any specific reportage or piece of news that would corroborate these accusations. Nsabiyabandi denied all the accusations and pointed out that, since his appointment as the radio station’s editor in October 2016, he has not receiving any warning from the National Communication Council for bias or misreporting the news.As he was leaving the SNR agents threatened him of possible consequences should he not change his behaviour. Exile radio stations targetedThe regime had already made it clear at a news conference on 17 March that an offensive against independent media outlets was being planned. In particular, the government’s spokesman issued a warning to Bujumbura-based radio stations that were closed down and are now broadcasting from abroad.The authorities appear above all to be targeting the exile radio stations in Rwanda: Humura, an offshoot of the old RPA, and Radio Inzamba, which is operated by journalists who used to work for Radio Isanganiro and Bonesha FM. Both broadcast their news programmes online and via WhatsApp.Their very existence and their interviews of Burundians in refugee camps are an achievement. But they have had problems obtaining reliable information from Burundi and they have no access to government officials so they cannot get official reactions and cannot reflect all sides to some of the stories they report.“This intimidation of Burundian journalists in Burundi over their alleged collaboration with exile radio stations is designed to make it even harder for these radio stations to work and to isolate them even more,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“The Burundian government should be interested in a democratic and pluralistic debate to which the media could contribute. On the contrary, the authorities seem to favour a single narrative, one that supports President Nkurunziza’s exclusive power.”Internal pressureYesterday’s interrogation of Radio Isanganiro’s editor by the SNR seems also designed to intimidate journalists working for media outlets within Burundi, who are under constant pressure, including within their own news organizations.Radio Isanganiro is symptomatic of this situation. After being closed down like all the other independent radio stations in May 2015, it was allowed to reopen with Samson Maniradukunda appointed by a pro-government supervisory board as its new director, replacing Anne Niyuhire, who had fled to Rwanda.To get permission to reopen, Radio Isanganiro had to sign an undertaking to pursue a “balanced and objective” editorial policy that respects the country’s “security.”What “balanced and objective” means is left to the government and the new director, who makes it his job to implement government directives restricting the radio station’s editorial freedom. Sources close to the station say he has repeatedly intervened to get programmes changed after receiving calls from members of the government.Radio Isanganiro’s journalists complain of being under constant pressure at work. Several of them were recently fired for defending their principles while those still there are alarmed by the fact that they have had to sign a new code of ethics.In a country where the rule of law has been ignored for the past two years, where people can be arrested by intelligence officials and never reappear, and where everything is being done to tighten the regime’s grip on the population, the mere fact of having to sign a document at work can be very disturbing.Burundi is ranked 156th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

The Ups and Downs of Mortgage Forbearance Trends

A total of 3.6 million homeowners are in forbearance plans, it estimates.Similarly, the share of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans in forbearance came in at 4.93%, a one basis point retreat. Ginnie Mae loans in forbearance were unmoved at 9.54%, while there was an upward shift of three basis points to 10.37% in the forbearance share for portfolio loans and private-label securities. Meantime, there was an ascension one basis point to 7.48% in the percentage of loans in forbearance for depository servicers. Among independent mortgage bank servicers, the percentage of loans in forbearance ticked up to 7.43%, a jump of one basis point.A total of 37.91% of total loans in forbearance are in the initial forbearance plan stage; 61.34% are in a forbearance extension. The remaining 0.75% are forbearance re-entries. Total weekly forbearance requests as a percent of servicing portfolio volume compared to thee week before receded from 0.11% to 0.10%.While the share of loans in forbearance declined for the 10th consecutive week, the rate of improvement markedly slowed, said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s Senior Vice President and Chief Economist.“The extremely high rate of initial claims for unemployment insurance and high level of unemployment remain a concern, and are indications of the challenges many households are facing, while new forbearance requests remain low, particularly for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans, the pace of exits from forbearance has declined for two straight weeks.”During the week of March 30 to April 5, the number of home loans in forbearance ballooned from 2.73% to 3.74%, according to an MBA survey.Ginnie Mae-backed mortgages experienced not only the most significant weekly expansion of 1.58%, but the highest overall share in forbearance requests at 5.89%.Fratantoni said the nationwide shutdown of the economy to slow the spread of COVID-19 continues to spark hardships for millions of households, and more are contacting their servicers for relief in accordance with the forbearance provisions under the CARES Act.”The share of loans in forbearance grew the first week of April, and forbearance requests and call center volume further increased. With mitigation efforts seemingly in place for at least several more weeks, job losses will continue and the number of borrowers asking for forbearance will likely continue to rise The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Ups and Downs of Mortgage Forbearance Trends Subscribe Chuck Green has contributed to the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune and others covering various industries, including real estate, business and banking, technology, and sports.
