How to get a grant for up to £10,000
National Lottery funding can help you to make a difference in your community. We offer funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.
For now we’re prioritising funding projects and organisations supporting communities through the COVID-19 pandemic
In order to prioritise COVID-19, we won't be able to process non-COVID applications under £10,000 in some areas for now – this will differ depending on where an organisation is based. So you can still apply for some of our existing funding, but it might take a bit longer to get it from us.

Occasionally the Fund makes grants of under £10,000 to projects that benefit people right across the UK. Find out more about our UK-wide funding. We also make grants of more than £10,000 for longer term projects.
