Prince’s Countryside Fund Accepting Applications for Spring 2023 Round

Community

22 March 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding for not-for-profit community-led projects that improve the lives of those living in rural communities in the UK.

The Prince’s Countryside Fund is currently accepting applications from constituted, not-for-profit organisations with an income of less than £500,000 for projects that will create a long-term difference in rural communities across the UK.

Grants of up to £25,000 over two years are available for projects that can be completed by December 2025.

The funding is designed to support community-led projects that are pursuing innovative and strategic solutions to the challenges facing their rural area and which will improve the viability and resilience of their community.

Successful projects will achieve one or more of the following:

  • Support people to resolve existing and emerging community issues, circumstances, and priorities in their locality.
  • Build rural community resilience.
  • Develop innovative and replicable projects.
  • Enable leadership and community planning.
  • Improve the economic or social resilience of a rural community.
  • Reduce isolation for people living in rural areas through improving service provision.
  • Create a self-sufficient rural community fit for the future.

There is particular interest in 'fledgeling' ideas and projects.

There are a number of funding restrictions, including purchase of food, working capital, youth clubs or projects where there may be other more appropriate funders, such as those dealing with domestic violence, dementia or elderly care, and migration.

Groups are encouraged to submit their application before the deadline as the link to the application form will be taken down at midday on the closing date.

The deadline for applications is midday on 11 April 2023.

 

How To Apply

There are usually two funding rounds per year with applications accepted in the Spring and again in the Autumn.

The deadline for applications to the Spring 2023 grant is midday on 11 April 2023.

Notification of decisions is expected the week commencing 5 June 2023 with the first grant payment made at the end of June 2023.

Eligibility criteria, eligibility quiz, FAQs and online application portal can be found on the Prince's Countryside Fund website.
