  • The Prince's Countryside Fund - Supporting Rural Communities

    Created: 06/09/2022

    The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides grants for projects from across the UK which are working to create resilient rural communities. This Fund will support community-led projects that are pursuing innovative and strategic solutions to the challenges facing their rural area and improving the long-term viability and resilience of their community.

    Successful projects will do one or more of the following:

    • Support people to resolve existing and emerging community issues, circumstances, and priorities
    • Build rural community resilience
    • Develop innovative and replicable projects
    • Enable leadership and community planning

    Successful projects will demonstrate how they are addressing one of more of the following objectives:

    • Improving the economic or social resilience of a UK rural community
    • Reducing isolation for people living in rural areas through improving service provision
    • Creating a rural community fit for the future.

    Who can apply

    Applications are encouraged from properly constituted, community-led organisations with a turnover under £500,000 per year, that can demonstrate how beneficiaries will be drawn directly from the local rural community.

    When to apply

    Applications will close at 12:00 on 11 October 2022. Applications will be informed of the decision at the beginning of December with first payments being made in January 2023.
