Who is eligible for grants?

Each grant available has its own specific criteria, meaning eligibility for a grant can vary significantly. Usually, individuals who are eligible for grants from community foundations include disadvantaged members of the community, those in hardship, those with poor living circumstances, those with a disability and those with a specific project or talent to pursue without the means to do so.

In terms of groups, those who are eligible for a grant include registered charity groups, local community centres or community groups. The grants you can apply for will be dependent on many factors, so be sure to fully read the criteria of each grant before you apply to ensure you are eligible and give you the best chances of success.
