Rural projects urged to apply for up to £50,000 in PCF spring allocation

Now in its ninth year, the grant has launched its spring round of funding open from January 9 to February 21 where rural projects can apply for up to £50,000.

 

More than £1 million is expected to be given out this year by the PCF.

 

The Fund aims to support projects that are sustaining rural communities; improving the prospects of viability for farm and rural businesses; and supporting aid delivery in emergency and building resilience.

 

For example, projects can apply for the bursary if they:

  • deliver rural assets, businesses and services that keep isolated communities together – as well as providing advice, new skills and business training to benefit the local economy;
  • develop stronger, more sustainable farm businesses and other enterprises with the aim of halting the decline of the rural economy;
  • and support rural businesses and communities to plan for and recover from natural disasters.

Claire Saunders, director of The Prince’s Countryside Fund, said: “The 55 projects put forward to our Recharging Rural research last summer demonstrated the extraordinary breadth of ideas that communities use to build their resilience, many of which our grant can support.

 

“Our grants help to support a diverse range of projects often delivered by local organisations, such as training vouchers for young farmers, equipment for local abattoirs, overheads and staffing costs for farmer-led networks, village shops and pubs, and development schemes for rural businesses.

 

“We give our more than £1 million in funding each year and are very keen to hear from projects of all types in our rural areas.”
