Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (The) Major Grants Programme to Address Veteran’s Housing Needs (UK) - Deadline: 17th June 2024

Charities and registered social housing providers with experience in supporting veterans are invited to apply for grants

of £75,000 to £500,000 through the Major Capital Grants programme. This new initiative aims to alleviate the housing challenges faced by veterans, contributing to the government’s ambition to reduce veteran homelessness and end rough sleeping. The Trust is also able to offer larger grants of £500,000 to £1 million for exceptional projects. These larger grants will be subject to additional eligibility criteria, including secured match funding of at least 30% at time of application.

The grants will be awarded across four funding rounds, supporting projects that involve new builds or significant refurbishment, including extensions, of rental accommodation offering high-quality support for veterans with a housing need. To be eligible for funding, applicants must demonstrate that a substantial portion of their organisation’s work focuses on veterans or that they possess extensive experience in working with this demographic.

The grants will be used to enhance the availability of affordable and supportive housing options for veterans, contributing to their overall wellbeing and integration into civilian life. The closing date for Expressions of Interest for the first funding round of this programme is 5pm on 17th June 2024.
