Community Radio Fund

Currently closed

The first round of the Community Radio Fund 2019-20 has opened for applications from eligible stations. The fund is to support community radio licensees in the UK to fund the core costs of running a community radio station.

The average grant is around £16,500.

Eligible expenditure will be that related to core functions including:

  • Fundraising to support the station (eg grants and commercial funding).
  • Management.
  • Administration.
  • Financial management and reporting.
  • Community outreach.
  • Volunteer organisation and support.

The funding is intended to help further a station’s financial stability and future sustainability. Therefore proposals to promote long-term financial security and posts which could become self-sustaining are viewed more favourably than applications for other support roles.
