Grant programmes with application deadlines between Monday 25th March and Sunday 7th April 2024

This is a regular Friday website feature in which we list grant programmes with application deadlines over the next fortnight.

Today’s listing includes Sunday 31st March and Monday 1st April. The end and start of each month tend to be dates when grant providers set their deadlines for the receipt of applications, and so are busier than at other times of the month. Alongside the national schemes listed, a number of South West England grant programmes are included. This is because GRIN SW LLP is a South West (Devon) based social enterprise with a particular interest in highlighting the availability of grant programmes in the region.

If you click on the title of each grant scheme, it should take you directly to the grant programme in question. All funders and grant programmes included have featured in the daily grants bulletin we send out at 8.30 each weekday morning. A free 2-week trial is available for anyone who would like to try out the daily bulletin. Simply email GRIN at info@grin.coop with ‘Free 2-week trial’ as the subject heading and we’ll get you signed up.
