Community Investment Grants

Community Investment Grants

Our grants fund that benefits not only our tenants, but the wider community too.

Our community investment grants are funds you can potentially access, to invest in community projects. To see examples of projects this has helped support, please click here.

We have a new strategy for these grants from 2022, which you can see here.

Our criteria for funding:

  1. Your project must be for the benefit of the community on a not-for-profit basis.
  2. It must identify a specific need.
  3. It needs to be within five miles of one of our home or estates.
  4. You will need to provide a detailed financial plan.
  • How much money can I request for my project?

    There is no minimum or maximum sum for which you can apply. However, we are unable to fund the entire cost of a project. Our panel wants to see that you have raised some money yourself, and that you have made applications to other funding sources where possible.

    As a guide, a typical application has a project total of between £4,000 and £5,000, and the sum applied for would be between £1,500 and £2,500. On occasions, we have been one of up to 16 funders for big projects. On others, we have been the sole external funder for a small project.

  • Can we apply again if we have already had a grant?

    Yes. If your project is different to the previous one, and you fit our criteria above, then you can apply for a grant. The only condition we may make is that other applications are assessed ahead of yours.
