Village Hall Improvement Fund

The Village Hall Improvement Grant Fund is now open to applications from village halls across England. The grant aims to help fund the updating and refurbishment of village halls so that they are fit for purpose and provide activities which seek to achieve one or more of the following outcomes for their communities:

  • Improved health and well being / reduction in loneliness
  • Demonstrates a positive impact on the environment
  • Supports the local rural economy

The scheme will fund up to 20% of eligible costs, with a minimum grant of £10,000 and a maximum grant of £75,000 payable. This means overall scheme costs would be between £50,000 and £375,000.

Full details and further eligibility criteria can be found on the ACRE website.
