Funding for registered allotment associations and committees for the improvement and development of facilities on registered and permitted sites.

The National Allotment Gardens Trust, a registered charity, has a small amount of funding that it provides each year for allotment and garden projects.

Registered non-profit making allotment associations, societies and committees in the UK can apply along with non-statutory sites if a long-term lease is in place.

To be eligible, applicants must be officially recognised by the landlord of the site and have a written and signed constitution, a bank account with three signatories and a forwarding address and named contact.

Applications are considered four times a year.

The next deadline for applications is 1 April 2023.
