Community Covenant Grant Scheme

The Community Covenant Grant Scheme has been launched in Sheffield to help local projects strengthen the ties between members of the armed forces community and the wider community in which they live.

The aims of the covenant are to:

    • Encourage local communities to support the armed forces community in their areas, and vice versa;
    • Promote understanding and awareness among the public of issues affecting the armed forces community;
    • Recognise and remember the sacrifices made by the armed forces community;
    • Encourage activities which help to integrate the armed forces community into local life.

How much is available?
Up to £30 million has been set aside for this scheme, to be awarded from 2011 over the next four years. Applications will be considered for funding between £100 to £250,000.  The first deadline for this 4 year funding is 11 May 2012 but applications will be considered on an ongoing basis.
