Grant programmes with application deadlines between Monday 29th April and Sunday 12th May 2024

Here’s our regular Friday website feature in which we list grant programmes with application deadlines over the next couple of weeks.

Today’s listing covers the period Monday 29th April to Sunday 12th May 2024Alongside the national schemes listed, we often provide details of a number of grant programmes specific to the South West of England. 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.
