The fund projects that make a positive difference to rural communities
The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides more than £1m in grants each year to projects across the UK. We have grants of up to £50,000 available for innovative projects that will provide a lasting legacy to the individuals and communities they seek to benefit.
We recognise that rural communities face a range of challenges. One way in which we help grassroots organisations overcome these is through our grant programme.
We seek applications to support activity that results in a long-term positive impact on rural communities by helping the people that live and work in the countryside. Our grant programme currently aims to tackle the following key rural issues:
- Developing thriving rural communities by improving service provision in rural areas.
- Transforming rural livelihoods by supporting rural enterprise and farming businesses.
- Creating the farmers of the future by providing training opportunities for young people and unemployed people.
