Fund description:

Applications can now be submitted for revenue grants in 2017/18 to support the development of community-led building and community-led housing projects:

Community Buildings Pre-Feasibility Grants scheme – to support community groups that have identified a possible community building project and are assessing the way forward. The funding aims to help local groups decide whether it is feasible to take on the project. (£1,000 – £10,000)

Community Buildings Project Support Grants Scheme – to help eligible organisations to move their project through the planning process to the point where they are able to submit a Community Right to Build Order, or (in the case of community-led housing projects only) a traditional planning permission application. (£5,000 – £40,000)

Any Town or Parish Council, Neighbourhood Forum or qualifying community group can apply.
