Repair Grants


The 2016 Repair Grants Programme is open until 12th September. Please see further information below and follow the links to apply.

Our Repair Grants programme offers grants of £10,000 and above towards the cost of urgent and essential structural repair projects. A small number of grants are available at £40,000 and above. 

To qualify projects must have an estimated cost of at least £100,000 (including VAT and fees) . Other eligibility criteria apply.

New for 2016 was the chance for churches awarded a National Churches Trust Community Grant to obtain a £2,000 micro-grant to set up a Cinnamon Network RecognisedProject that meets the needs of local people. We are pleased to be extending this to repair grant applicants with necessary facilities already in place. The micro-grants will allow churches to set up a social action project such as CAP Money Courses, Make Lunch and Parish Nursing.  Churches will also be able to access the support and training provided by Cinnamon Network’s regional Advisers and Trainers.

If your building is in England or Scotland, and the project has a cost of less than £100,000, please visit our Partnership Grants page. There is a list of local trusts that we work with using local knowledge to target grants for a wide range of repair projects with costs of up to £100,000. If there is a local trust in your area and they are not listed, you may still be able to apply under their own grants programme. Please use this page to find their contact details.

The deadline for a 2016 Repair and/or Community grant decision is 12th September. New dates have just been announced for our 2017 grant programmes - there will be three decision rounds. The application form will be offline from 12th September and will reopen in October. The first deadline for applications to our 2017 grants programmes will be 29 November 2016.
