The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides more than £1m in grants each year to projects across the UK. They 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.
They recognise that rural communities face a range of challenges. One way in which they help grassroots organisations overcome these is through our grant programme.
They 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. The grant programme currently aims to tackle the following key rural issues:
- To improve the prospects of viability for family farm businesses
- To sustain rural communities and drive economic vibrancy
- To support aid delivery in emergency and building resilience
Each theme is described in more detail in the Grant Eligibility and Guidance Document.
The Fund will be open for grant applications from April 30th to June 14th 2018.
