Village halls small grants fund

Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) has released details about a funding opportunity for Village Halls. 

Grants of between £2,000 and £5,000 may be available to help make improvements to rural community buildings in England.

Grants are intended to support smaller capital projects in village halls such as boiler replacements, insulation, toilet upgrades and new kitchens.

Awards can be made to cover 20% of eligible project costs, up to a maximum amount of £5,000. The balance of funding for the works proposed must be in place, or at least confirmed within 6 weeks of making an application to small grants fund.

The fund is expected to stay open until December 2024, however it may be withdrawn before this.
