You must have annual accounts.

How much and what you can apply for

  • Can apply for £2,000 – £10,000 for a single year grant, covering core costs, salaries, running and project costs.
  • Cannot apply for more than 50% of cost of project.
  • Available to organisations with annual income under £250,000.

Projects must either be based in:

  • An economically deprived rural area: villages or towns with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants, which are within the bottom 50% on the Index of Multiple Deprivation, or
  • An area of extreme urban deprivation: towns with more than 10,000 inhabitants, which are within the bottom 15% on the Index of Multiple Deprivation.
