The NCT has revised its grants programmes in line with its new 2019-2023 strategy and now offers:
Foundation Grants – between £500 and £3,000 towards urgent maintenance works and small repairs identified as high priority within a recent Quinquennial Inspection or Survey Report. Also, small investigative works and surveys. Project costs should not exceed £10,000. [Opening soon]
Gateway Grants – between £3,000 and £10,000 towards project development and investigative work to support churches preparing for a major project, and in developing their project to the point at which they can approach a major grant funder. [Opening soon]
Cornerstone Grants – between £10,000 and £50,000 towards the cost of urgent structural repair projects costed at more than £100,000. The Trust will also consider projects that introduce kitchens and accessible toilets to enable increased community use, costed at more than £30,000.
Grants can cover up to 50% of costs – match funding must be found from other sources.
