Small Grants

National Lottery funded small grant programmes have been around for quite a number of years now; originally offering grants from  £500 - £5,000, the programmes have been extended in recent years  to offer grants from £300 - £10,000. For the first few years some National Lottery distributors pooled their small grants funding and this was administered by the Big Lottery Fund under its ‘Awards for All’ programme.  Since April 2009 Sport England and the Heritage Lottery Fund have established their own small grants programme.  From the outset the Arts Council had a small grants programme of its own.  Small grants offer an excellent opportunity to inject funding into small scale sport and physical activity projects that have a total project cost under £50,000.

 

Jenny Warner, our information specialist, has produced an article on the Big Lottery Fund and Sport England's Small Grants Programme for VAGA clients.
