Village Hall Improvement Grant Fund

The Fund is closed for applications at this time but please complete this Expression of Interest Form so that we can contact you when and if further funding should become available.

The Autumn 2018 budget announced that, to mark the centenary of the Armistice, government would support several initiatives, including making available grant funding to support improvement projects for village halls.

The grant funding is managed by ACRE on behalf of Defra with support from the ACRE Network. The grant aims to help fund the updating and refurbishment of village halls so that they are fit for purpose and provide activities which seek to achieve one or more of the following outcomes for their communities:

•Improved health and wellbeing/reduction in loneliness

•Demonstrates a positive impact on the environment

•Supports the local rural economy

There will be greater emphasis given to applications who have already secured most of the funding.
