Project delivery grants of up to £4000 will support grassroots organisations to deliver projects that address Comic Relief’s four strategic themes. Projects should be able to clearly show, the local need for the project, robust planning, and legacy.
Examples of project delivery grants:
This list is not exhaustive and there will be many other types of projects that can be funded. all projects must be completed in 12 months. Core organisational costs, may be included but the fund will not fund projects which only contribute to organisational general running costs or solely a continuation of services. Project delivery grants do not require match funding, however if they do the Comic Relief Community Fund should be the main funding source.
This programme supports projects that will contribute to the transformation of high streets and town centres in England helping them become thriving places, strengthening local communities and encouraging local economies to prosper. It is part of a wider initiative to revive heritage high streets in England, alongside Historic England’s High Streets Heritage Action Zones. Together, these programmes form part of the Future High Streets Fund, administered by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
Our programme is for individual heritage buildings in, or transferring to, community ownership. We will support charities and social enterprises to develop projects with the potential to bring new life to high streets by creating alternative uses for redundant or underused historic buildings in town centres.
What types of funding are available and when can I apply?
The AHF can provide grants to help with assessing the viability of a project, or to help fund development costs or to match funds raised through Crowdfunding and Community Shares. We will also provide a small number of capital (delivery) grants for Transformational Projects. Below you will find the dates for the opening of initial grant applications.
We are happy for you to send this information to other groups, but please acknowledge the source.
