Maintenance Grants


Our Maintenance Grant Programme is currently open

Our Maintenance grant programme is a pilot programme, in partnership with the Pilgrim Trust, offering awards of between £500 and £3,000 to encourage churches to act on small, urgent maintenance issues and repairs to church buildings, as identified in a recent Quinquennial Inspection Report, condition survey or report by a gutter management contractor, or MaintenanceBooker Maintenance Plus Survey report (find out more here), and costed between £1,000 and £10,000.

Proposed works must be to the main church building, and applicants must be able to show they have already raised 50% of the total repair costs, and to have obtained two quotes for the works.

You can find out more about our Maintenance Grants by watching the video below.

Our grant programmes are changing. Details of deadlines beyond 26 September 2018, and the programmes and funding for 2019, will be announced later in the year. Do not start an application if you will not meet the 26 September deadline. Find out more here.
