This is a £3 million funding programme to fund renovations and improvements to veterans’ community centres.
Grants of up to £30,000 are available. A small number of grants of up to £150,000 will be made to more complex projects.
The Veterans’ Community Centres Programme is a specialist pot of funding. Applicants must be Armed Forces charities with an existing building that requires refurbishment.
Most grants will be for £30,000 or less. There will be three rounds of funding. Grants of up to £150,000 will only be made in the final application round. Applicants seeking between £30,000 and £150,000 must have a mandatory conversation with the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust before submitting an application. Applications for both levels of grant funding are now closed.
