Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust Releases Funding Schedule for 2023/24


15 March 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding for projects and organisations making a positive difference to the lives of service personnel and their families.

Initial details of the Trust’s grants programme for the coming year are now available to allow groups to start planning their applications. The schedule features several existing schemes which have been refreshed to reflect ongoing economic challenges and the level of need in Armed Forces communities.

The Force for Change programme, set to open in spring 2023, will now offer project grants of £15,000 in light of the cost-of-living crisis, with a focus on those most impacted.

The Reaching and Supporting Armed Forces Communities programme will open for its second year, offering large grants to address hidden and complex needs. This is expected to reopen in summer 2023.

Lastly, the Transformational Grants programme will offer five-year grants of up to £300,000 for groups delivering long-term and sustainable change for vulnerable Armed Forces communities. This fund is also expected to reopen in summer 2023.

Applicants should refer to the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust website for more information.

More details will be published in due course.
