Community grants up for grabs

Posted onPosted on 3rd Jun

Nationwide, the world’s largest building society, has announced that applications for its 2021 Community Grants Programme are now open.

The Community Grants Programme tackles local housing issues by giving charities, community land trusts and housing co-operatives access to grants between £10,000 and £50,000. Applications are open to any organisations that provide solutions to help:

Prevent people from losing their home
Help people into a home
Support people to thrive within the home environment
Nationwide’s Community Boards, made up of community-minded colleagues working at the building society and its members, come together to decide which projects should be awarded a grant, and in doing so are supporting their own communities to find solutions to the housing crisis.

This year Nationwide is capping the amount of Community Grant applications it will accept, meaning approximately one in four applicants will be successful. If the cap isn’t reached, applications will close at 11pm on Monday, 21 June.
