The Prince’s Countryside Fund is now open for applications to support community led groups and projects in rural areas around the UK.
Applications are encouraged from community groups and charities to apply for grants of up to £50,000 from the fund until June 14th 2018.
The fund is committed to supporting projects which will reinvigorate and sustain community networks, by providing services and amenities.
Since the Fund was set up by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010 it has distributed more than £9 million to communities across the UK.
Fund director Claire Saunders said: “This is a critical time for people and businesses in our rural areas, and we are seeking applicants for our grant programme who can help to ensure that their rural communities can thrive now and in the future.
“We want to hear from innovative and creative community led projects that are responding to local needs and would urge people to consider applying.
The fund aims to enhance the prospects of family farm businesses and the quality of rural life.
