A new Small Grants Programme is to launch this coming January, continuing the legacy of former initiatives like the Prince’s Countryside Fund.
This new programme focuses on supporting projects that contribute to the environment, countryside, social inclusion, health and wellbeing, education, heritage and conservation.
Each year, the fund will allocate grants of up to £5,000 to about 100 community-based registered organisations, including charities, Community Interest Companies, and Parish Councils.
It aims to support small-scale projects that have the potential to create substantial impacts within their communities, especially those that typically face challenges in accessing larger funding sources.
Applicants must have been active for at least two years, have an annual income of less than £1million and hold less than 6 months’ reserves.
If the application is for project funding, the total cost of the project should not exceed £200,000.
There is also an existing separate Large Grants Programme for which applications are by invitation only.
