Main grants scheme for village halls

Grants up to £75,000 to support larger improvement projects to rural community buildings in England such as full refits and extensions

We are pleased to be able to re-release our main grants scheme which was first announced in 2022 in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

This scheme is for those responsible for rural community buildings who wish to make substantive improvements to their building, whether that be extensions or improving energy efficiency and contributing to Net Zero.

Awards can be made to cover 20% of eligible project costs, up to a maximum amount of £75,000. The balance of funding for the works proposed must be in place, or at least confirmed within 6 months of receiving a grant offer. We recommend you only submit an application to the fund once the project is ready to proceed, and you have everything in place.

Please note, smaller grants up to £5,000 are available for more modest improvements.
