The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides more than £1m in grants each year to projects across the UK. Grants of up to £50,000 are available for innovative projects that will provide a lasting legacy to the individuals and communities they seek to benefit.

The trust recognise that rural communities face a range of challenges. One way in which the Prince's Countryside Trust help grassroots organisations overcome these is through their grant programme.

The Prince's Countryside Trust are seeking applications to support activity that results in a long-term positive impact on rural communities by helping the people that live and work in the countryside. The grant programme currently aims to tackle the following key rural issues:

  1. To improve the prospects of viability for family farm businesses
  2. To sustain rural communities and drive economic vibrancy
  3. To support aid delivery in emergency and building resilience


The deadline for this round of applications is 5th October at 5pm.
