Grant Giving Programme

Grant Giving Programme

The Prince’s Countryside Fund has grants of up to £50,000 available for projects that will provide a long-term positive impact to the individuals and communities they seek to benefit.

We provide funding towards projects affecting areas of greatest need in rural England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Our grants aim to sustain rural communities, improve the prospects of viability for farm and rural businesses, and support aid delivery in an emergency and build resilience. These are detailed more in our Eligibility and Guidance document.
