The Reaching and Supporting Armed Forces Communities programme from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund will award grants of up to £100,000 over a period of up to three years. For exceptional projects, larger grants may be available. The fund is looking for projects that are specific and targeted; and this could include addressing hidden needs, as well as needs that are more well known.
They are also looking for applications that can be clear about the evidence of why their project is needed, and how the impact of the project will continue after the grant has ended.
The fund will be more likely to fund projects that focus on specific groups of people within Armed Forces communities, rather than more general approaches. They are also keen to see that the people who will benefit from the project have been able to shape how it will be delivered.
There will be two rounds of this funding programme, with two deadlines during 2022/23.

For a decision in February 2023 you will need to submit your application by 14 November 2022.
