How much funding is available?

The 2019/20 National Park Grant Scheme total budget is £87,000:

  • £80,000 of the total budget is for capital projects; this includes projects that produce a physical asset, such as repairs to a building or building a bridge; or contribute towards producing a physical asset, such as a technical/feasibility study or design.
  • £1,000 of the total budget is for revenue projects, such as time-limited project staff costs.
  • £6,000 is ring fenced for revenue expenditure to support the capacity of Community Development Trusts (CDTs). This fund will be administered independently by the National Park Authority’s Community Team, who will be in touch with CDTs directly.
  • The National Park Authority reserves the right to change the overall budget.

Please note, this is a highly competitive grant scheme with a limited budget and you may not receive 100% of your requested funding.
